TROTWOOD, Ohio (WDTN) – A concerned staff member at Trotwood High School warned administration of a possible firearm inside the building, which prompted the building to go under lockdown Wednesday.

According to the City of Trotwood, a single bullet was found on the floor of the boy’s bathroom around 10 a.m., which prompted a thorough search of the building. No firearm or ammunition was found during the search.

“In conjunction with the Trotwood Police Department it was determined that keeping students in class while the Department manages to complete a thorough investigation of the concern that was raised, is in the best interest of the students and staff,” Cosby said.

Cosby said the students were not in danger and they were fed and allowed restroom breaks during the lockdown. The district let the lockdown expire at 2 p.m., and all students and staff have returned to their normal schedule, the school said.
