A rumor that a student brought a firearm to Bridgeport High School was quickly dispelled Friday afternoon, according to a press release by Bridgeport ISD Superintendent Brandon Peavey.

Peavey said the school district received an unconfirmed report that an unknown student heard another student say they had a gun. The Bridgeport Campus Police Officers, Campus Administrators and other District Administrators investigated the situation at the time of the report.

Bridgeport ISD interviewed students and reviewed security cameras during the investigation and no firearm was found on campus.

Bridgeport Police Chief Steve Stanford said the department increased the number of officers at the high school and also brought in a dog used to detect firearms and gunpowder. Stanford added no firearm was discovered.

Bridgeport campus police will remain on campus through dismissal Friday.
