NEW HAVEN, CT (WFSB) -

New Haven police are looking for a student who reportedly brought a gun to school on Wednesday afternoon.

Police said the student reportedly threatened to bring a gun to the New Lite School, which is located on Wooster Place. A lockdown was put in place but has since been lifted.

A fight reportedly happened just before 1 p.m. at the school, and after it broke up a student involved left the school.

A school security guard told school officials that same student returned to the school and was armed with a handgun.

The student made it onto school grounds, but not inside the building.

Officers are still searching for the student in question.

Police stayed at the school through dismissal.
