Deputies with the Nash County Sheriff's Office raced to Southern Nash High School in Bailey Thursday morning after getting a report of a fight involving a student with a gun and another with a broken bottle.

Officers were on scene three minutes after getting the call at 7:43 a.m. and the school was put on lockdown.

Deputies said what actually happened was a student smashed a trophy case and was holding a piece of glass to his own throat attempting to hurt himself.

The student was taken into custody and taken to Nash General Hospital for evaluation.

Deputies said there were no injuries and the lockdown was lifted about 10 minutes later.
