A student was arrested at Plymouth Middle School after firing several gunshots in a hallway Monday morning.

The incident sparked a lockdown at the school, but nobody was injured and the student was taken into custody without incident.

According to police, the shots were fired at 8:45 a.m. outside of a bathroom, with the student arrested by a school resource officer, with a gun recovered.

Per the Star Tribune, the sixth-grader took the gun from his father's bedroom and brought it to school.

The school, which is part of Robbinsdale Area Schools, released students to reunite with parents at Armstrong High School. 

"We are aware of a serious incident at Plymouth Middle School this morning. All students are safe, however, the school remains in lockdown. We're still gathering information," Robbinsdale Area Schools announced shortly after 10 a.m.

"For families who wish to pick up their Plymouth Middle School students this morning, please go to the east parking lot of Armstrong High School for reunification. Parents can pick their students up there. Please do not call the school at this time. Thank you."

Plymouth Middle School is part of Robbinsdale Area Schools, not the Wayzata School District.
