LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Police have arrested a man that had a gun on his person near Doss High School and Trunell Elementary School.

Jefferson County Public Schools officials said they received a tip that a friend of a Doss student had a weapon in a vehicle, but there was not threat or altercation.

Police said when they arrived at Doss around 10:30 a.m. Wednesday they found 18-year-old Tyler Abshire heading to a car parked in the back lot at the school, and upon searching the vehicle, officers found a handgun inside. Abshire was arrested without incident on a charge of unlawful possession of a handgun on school property.

The schools were placed on lockdown for a period while police cleared the area and took Abshire into custody. They have since returned to normal operations.

Abshire is not a student at Doss High School, police said.
