WESLACO, Texas (ValleyCentral) — Weslaco Police are still on the scene at Weslaco High School after a call of a possible student with a gun.

Just after 4 p.m., police announced the school was safe and students were slowly being released to their parents.

Department spokesperson Officer Miguel Martinez said out of caution the school was placed on lockdown for several hours.

For parents like Betty Fernandez, the hours of waiting for her daughter has been agonizing.

“I’m terrified, terrified beyond measure. I mean knowing that maybe one second I’m asking her if she’s okay and she’s like just my mom. Okay? And then there’s you know maybe like a moment of silence as a parent like even though they’re saying to repay but you know they’re not okay emotionally especially,” Fernandez said.

Officials say no shots were fired, no gun was found and the investigation continues.

Students are being released to parents at the Bobby Lackey Stadium parking lot. The entrance to the parking lot is only accessible through the Panther Drive Entrance where law enforcement is currently directing traffic.
