CHELSEA, AL (WBRC) -
One person has been detained for questioning after holding students at gunpoint at Chelsea Middle School, according to the Shelby County Sheriff's Department.
At approximately 3:10 on Tuesday afternoon Chelsea Middle School and Chelsea Intermediate School were placed on lockdown after a man entered the school and held children against their will at gunpoint. It happened in a girl's locker room off the gym.
A parent named Tracy Dale Greene told FOX6 News reporter Jonathan Hardison that his daughter was in a girl's locker room when an unknown man walked in with a handgun.
Greene said his daughter told him the man waved the gun around, pointed it at the class of girls and said, 'Y'all need to get out of here.'"
Greene says his daughter called her gym teacher a hero for stepping in front of the gunman and telling everyone to get out of the room before calling police.
The suspect is a former Chelsea Middle School student and a former part time summer help employee, according to the sheriff's department.
A Shelby County Deputy/School Resource Officer was at the school and able to negotiate the release of children in about 20 minutes.
The FBI and the ATF were called to the school. A bomb squad checked school the for bombs, but did not find any. Deputies say he was working alone.
A suspect in custody, but has not been officially charged yet.
His motive is not known at this time.
School will be in session tomorrow. Four deputies will be on duty at the school, as well as a counselor.
