MILPITAS (CBS SF) — A lockdown at Milpitas High School has been lifted for the second time Thursday after police detained one student with a firearm and then subsequently investigated a rumor of a second armed student on campus.
Around 1 p.m., police said that a student had been detained, a gun had been recovered and the initial lockdown had been lifted.

By 3:03 p.m., police said they had contacted a student off campus, the lockdown had been lifted and students were being released from school.
Police said earlier Thursday that any rumors circulating about an active shooter were unfounded.
