Lockdown lifted at DuSable Leadership Academy, call ‘not bonafide’

CHICAGO -- Police said a call prompting a lockdown at DuSable Leadership Academy Wednesday evening may have been a prank.

The Bronzeville high school was placed on lockdown around 4 p.m. Wednesday as police responded to a call claiming two people had a gun inside.

After an investigation, police say the call was "not bonafide." No weapons were found after a canine search, police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said on Twitter. The school has been reopened.
