ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KMOX) - An investigation that led to Friday morning's soft lockdown at Mehlville High School has turned up a gun, although it was recovered off campus.
 
School district spokesperson Jessica Pupillo says they were contacted by St. Louis County Police.
 
"We had a report this morning that there could be a weapon on campus, so St. Louis County Police came, and ... we put the school on soft lockdown," she says.
 
Students could only move about the building under the supervision of a staff member, but that was lifted before 10 a.m. after no gun was found in the school.
