Reports of intruder prompt school lockdown; students safe

By The Associated Press

STONE MOUNTAIN, Ga. (AP) — School officials say reports of an intruder prompted a lockdown of a large high school just east of Atlanta.

DeKalb County Schools spokeswoman Portia Kirkland says all students and faculty members are safe after the Tuesday morning lockdown at Stephenson High School.

DeKalb County police Sgt. J.D. Spencer says his agency is assisting the school's officers. The school system is Georgia's third-largest and has its own police department.

Students have resumed their normal school day. No further details were immediately released.
