This morning, Hudson High School went into lockdown mode as a possible gunman was sighted in the parking lot. School officials wasted no time in kick-starting security protocol.

As the incident unfolded, WEWS reported that the issue "turned out to be an employee of Hudson Community Television carrying an umbrella."
