Police on Tuesday took a Lincoln High School student into custody after he reportedly claimed to be armed with a gun, though it was unclear if he actually had a firearm, a San Diego officer said.

The incident, reported about 2:30 p.m., drew a huge police presence to the campus on Imperial Avenue between Interstate 805 and Euclid Avenue.

The person who reported the incident to police had not actually seen the student with a gun, San Diego police Officer Sarah Foster said. It was not immediately known if officers found a gun on the boy.

No injuries were reported and no shots were fired at the school, Foster said.

Police radio traffic indicated officers closed Imperial Avenue in both directions along the front of the campus, and a San Diego police SWAT unit reportedly responded. Images from a helicopter shared by local television news stations showed a large police presence at the school and showed officers and medics surrounding a detained student.

No other information was immediately available.
