New Bedford High School was locked down after an anonymous call to police.

Police received a call from a passing motorist early Friday about a student waiting at a bus stop with a handgun in his waistband.  It prompted the school to go into their safety protocol. Students remained in their home room while a search of the building was conducted.  Assistant Superintendent Heather Larkin tells WBSM News the school went into emergency mode.
