Gun Scare Triggers Lockdown At South Jersey College

A student at Brookdale Community College is in custody following a gun scare.  He was spotted in his car at around 6:45 last evening on the Lincroft campus holding what looked like a weapon. That triggered a campus-wide lock-down and frantic search for the student.

The Monmouth County Prosecutor's office says it turned out to be a BB gun. No threats were made against the school and the shelter-in-place order was lifted 15-minutes after it was issued.
