HOLLAND, Mich. — A lockdown has been lifted at West Ottawa High School on Thursday morning after reports of an individual seen with a weapon on campus.

The call came into the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office at about 8:20 a.m., according to a news release.

Both the North Building and South Building were put on lockdown while law enforcement searched the North Building.

Deputies say the individual seen with a weapon left the campus and is now being interviewed by investigators at a nearby home.

There is no additional threat to the public, according to the sheriff’s office, which is continuing to work with school administrators.
