Video: Nerf Gun Toy Causes Lockdown at Long Island, NY School

A lime-green Nerf toy gun caused a lockdown at Elmont Memorial High School in Long Island, New York on Tuesday (video below).

A 911 caller told Nassau County Police on Tuesday morning that she saw a suspicious teen wearing a black jacket, carrying a black backpack and a lime green gun, which she said appeared to be a toy, reports Fox 5 News.

In response, a SWAT team searched Elmont Memorial High School room by room. Police eventually found the lime-green Nerf gun in a student locker.

School officials confiscated the green toy gun and said it will be returned to the parents of the teen, who was not identified.

Parents were allowed to pick up their children early Tuesday afternoon over the toy gun scare. Police did not make any arrests and the lockdown was lifted.
