The lockdown ended at 1:18 p.m. when Principal Terry Anderson posted a message on the school's website and made a public address announcement indicating that the danger had passed. Authorities caught the student elsewhere.

Anderson said the school was placed in “routine lockdown” as a precaution.

The Pine City Pioneer reported that the 15-year-old boy ran away from home  Friday.

Classes continued during the lockdown, but students could not leave with building without a parent.
