    Police were at the scene of an Ohio elementary school Wednesday following a report of intruders entering the building with a weapon.

    The incident happened just after 2 p.m. at Wright Brothers Elementary School in Dayton.

    Montgomery County police said a caller reported three men had entered the school and at least one of them may have had a weapon. Authorities said calls indicated the school’s principal chased the men away from the school.

    Dayton Public Schools Public Information Officer Jill Moberley said three students from another school were outside of Wright School when a parent thought they saw a weapon.

    The students entered the school and the parent alerted school officials, Moberley said. The kids then ran back out of the building, followed by the school’s principal and staff.

    Three people were taken into custody by police, but authorities could not confirm if it was the same three people that entered the building.

    The school was placed on lockdown at the time of the incident but the lockdown was lifted as of 2 p.m., police said.

    The doors to the school had reportedly been opened for a presentation happening in the auditorium at the time, according to NBC affiliate WDTN.
