A North Carolina high school was placed on lockdown Tuesday.

It happened at Northampton County High School, near Conway.

The sheriff's department says the lockdown was put into place after someone heard rumors of a possible threat against the school.

They say someone called them about the rumor Monday night.

Deputies searched the school, but did not find any weapons.
