The following was recieved from Brazosport Independant School District:

 

The LOCKDOWN at Brazosport and SECURE at nearby campuses have been lifted. A Brazosport student reported seeing another student in the restroom with what appeared to be a weapon. The campus immediately followed safety protocols and went into LOCKDOWN, nearby campuses also initiated a SECURE protocol. The student in question is in police custody due to possessing a weapon on campus.
We understand that this was a stressful situation, and we want to reassure you that the safety of our students and staff is our utmost concern, especially during events such as this. We will have additional counselors and support services on campus this week providing any needed emotional support.
We want to thank the student who immediately reported the threat and our administrators and police department for a quick and thorough investigation. Thank you for your support during this time. Your patience and cooperation during this time have been greatly appreciated.
