GREENFIELD, Ind. (WISH) — Three people were placed in custody after a security incident Tuesday at Greenfield-Central High School.

Officers with the Greenfield Police Department, the Hancock County Sheriff Department and school security were called to the incident at the school that stemmed from a post on social media.

Detectives said they believe the incident started from a video of a 17-year-old on school property in a vehicle handling a gun.

The school was placed on lockdown from the post. The lockdown was precautionary and lifted within 30 minutes.

The school was later determined as safe, with no threat to the campus. Students were said to have never been in danger.

The 17-year-old that was on video with the gun may have charges filed against him pending review. Bailey Rankin, an 18-year-old who was also taken into custody, may also have charges filed against him. A second unidentified juvenile was later released after questioning.

The investigation remains ongoing.
