Posted: Updated:

HAMILTON TWP. -- George Hess School lifted its lock down Friday after reports of a suspicious person with a weapon near the school.

Police responded to the school just before 9:30 Friday morning.

With police assistance, the school put its emergency response plan into action, locking down the school. 

"Is there some sicko in my son's school? Its just too tough to talk about right now, really, really emotional. I want to know what's going on and police isn't giving us any information. From what the one officer said, he says everything's going to be ok, I'd like to believe that," said concerned parent Bobby Laws as the lock down was in place.

After a thorough search by officers and school employees, officials deemed the area safe ands allowed students to go on with their normal school day.
