TRINITY, TX (KTRE) -

Officials with the Trinity Independent School District locked down two campuses after a box of shells was found in one vehicle and two .22-caliber shell casings were found in another. The students involved cooperated fully with authorities, and no weapons were found.

A press release from Trinity ISD stated that during a routine campus search by Interquest Detection Canines, a dog alerted on a vehicle, and a box of .40-caliber shells was found inside. Two .22-caliber shell casings were found in another vehicle.

To ensure the safety of the students at Trinity High School and Trinity Middle School, both campuses were "locked down," according to the press release. Trinity Police Chief, Steve Jones, was contacted immediately and assisted administrators with the questioning and search of two students. The students cooperated with authorities and no weapons were found.

"I would like to thank Chief Steve Jones for his quick response and assistance in this situation," Superintendent Dave Plymale said.
