Authorities placed Hartford Public High School in lock-in mode on Tuesday morning because of a barricaded man.
However, the scene was cleared shortly after 10:30 a.m., according to police.

However, the lock-in has since been lifted.
Students were said to be safe, according to police.
There were no reported evacuations in the area, police said.
They said the man has a history with them. They were called to his home for a similar incident before.
They said he was taken to the hospital to get services.
