HOUSTON Two schools in the Spring Independent School District were placed on temporary lockdown after it was discovered that two pupils at one of the campuses owned a weapon.
There is not much information available at this time, but it took place at Westfield High School, where, according to an email sent out by officials from Spring ISD, “three males were seen accessing the building at Westfield High School main campus.” Details are scarce, but the incident did take place there.
