Rochester, N.Y. (WHAM) - A school at the Jefferson school campus was briefly placed on lockout Thursday while Rochester Police investigated a reported gun in a dumpster.

Police said officers received a call from someone out of state about a gun in a dumpster at the high school.

A robo call was sent to families at the Jefferson Campus. The message is written below:

This is Principal David Lincoln with a message for families of Virgil I. Grissom School 7.
First, I want to let you know that all children are safe. However, because of a police investigation outside of our building, our school is in a lockout. This means that classes are taking place normally, but all exterior doors are secured and being monitored.
This is a precautionary measure to ensure the safety of your children. I will provide an update when the lockout is lifted. Thank you.

Police have not made any arrests in connection with the weapon.
