    ISSAQUAH, Wash. -- Police in Issaquah and Sammamish were kept busy Wednesday after separate lockdowns were triggered at high schools in the area.

    Issaquah High School went into lockdown just before 10 a.m. after a report of a gun at the school, officials said. Nearby Issaquah Middle School and Clarke Elementary School also went into modified lockdown as a precaution.

    Police initially detained a small group of students, but only one of them – a 14-year-old boy – was ultimately taken into custody, officials said.

    No shots were fired, and the lockdown at Issaquah High School was eventually lifted around 11:30 a.m. No gun was found.

    Just after that incident completed, Skyline High School went into lockdown after school officials discovered a threat posted on a boys' bathroom wall.

    Students were evacuated to the stadium area so police and bomb dogs could do a complete search of the school.

    The lockdown was lifted by 2:30 p.m. and all students and staff were reported to be safe.

    No one was injured in either event.
