Decatur Central High School lifted its lockdown about noon.
"During third period today, a teacher found an unloaded gun in a student's backpack," read a statement from Robin Gregory, community relations specialist for the Metropolitan School District of Decatur Township. "The unloaded handgun was immediately handed over to administration."
The district said it put its safety protocols in place and that students and staff were not in any position to be hurt.
School officials said the student who brought the gun to school was taken into police custody.
