TWIN FALLS — Police found a BB gun at Canyon Ridge High School during lunchtime Thursday.

Police were responding to a report of a reckless driver who may have had a handgun, said Lt. John Wilson of the Twin Falls Police Department.

A “realistic looking” BB gun was found in a car in the Canyon Ridge High School parking lot, Wilson said.

The school was not placed on lockdown and is proceeding as normal, Twin Falls School District spokeswoman Eva Craner said.

“There is no threat to any students at this time,” stated an email from the school district to parents.

Classes were cancelled at Twin Falls High School last week over a report that students had threatened to bring guns to campus. A police investigation found the report was wrong and no threat had been made against the school.
