ST. PAUL, Minn. — A lockdown at St. Paul Central High School has ended with the arrest of three teens.

Police were called to the school about 10:15 a.m. Monday on a report of a fight and a possible gun. Authorities say they recovered a soft pellet gun and two knives.

No one was hurt in the fight that officials say started in a bathroom at the school.

School officials say two students decided over the weekend to fight while at school Monday. The weapons were not used during the altercation.

St. Paul Public Schools says “there are severe consequences for students who behave this way.” The district says it will follow its strict discipline procedures.
