Two Veterans Memorial HS students allegedly bring weapons to campus, sparking brief lockdown

The Judson ISD campus went into a brief lockdown Wednesday afternoon.

SAN ANTONIO — Judson ISD officials say two unidentified students were arrested and "will be held accountable" after they allegedly brought weapons to Veterans Memorial High School on Wednesday, causing the school to briefly go on lockdown. 

The report came in via an anonymous tip reporting a suspicious social media post, according to district officials. Judson ISD police helped secure the weapons and students in question. 

"Consequences will be given as appropriately aligned with local and state law and our student code of conduct, including expulsion," officials said in a statement. 

It's unknown exactly how many students and staff were inside the school for its summer schedule, and Bexar County authorities emphasized early on that while deputies responded to the high school, no shots had been fired. 

The school was back in "secure" status by about 3:15 p.m.
