LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Marion B. Earl Elementary School in the west Las Vegas Valley was placed on lockdown Tuesday afternoon, Clark County School District police confirmed.

CCSD police said the lockdown stemmed from a nearby investigation by Las Vegas Metro police.

According to Metro, officers were called at 1:40 p.m. to the 6800 block of West Tropicana Avenue. A person reported being the target of four to five rock-throwing juveniles.

Police said the juveniles began hurling rocks at patrol officers when they arrived. The group then hopped over a wall, with one of them appearing to have a handgun and another holding what looked like a rifle.

According to police, one of the weapons was left behind and later determined to be an airsoft gun.

CCSD police later said the lockdown was lifted, which happened at 2:45 p.m. Metro noted the lockdown would be lifted due to everyone involved being in custody or being identified.

The district said there was no disruption to the regularly scheduled dismissal at 3:11 p.m.

There were no injuries as a result of the incident.
