A Gloucester Township high school was placed on short-term lockdown today following reports of a suspicious person in the woods behind the school.

GTPD requested students and faculty stay put because of a ‘situation’ developing around noontime outside Timber Creek Regional High School on Jarvis Road in Erial, N.J. .

The school posted the following to its website around 12:15 p.m., according to NBCPhiladelphia.com:

“We have been instructed by the Gloucester Township Police to go into a lockout due to a problem outside the school but within the proximity of the school. Classroom instruction is on-going; however, no persons are permitted to enter or exit the building at this time.”

Shortly after 1 p.m., Black Horse Pike Regional School District Superintendent Dr. Brian Repici said the issue had been resolved and no students were deemed in harm’s way.

Police report the person was apprehended, but could not elaborate on what, or who, caused the scare.
