TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - School officials at Gale Elementary say that the school has been released and is no longer on lockdown.

Sgt. Maria Hawke says a woman called the school to say that her granddaughter was at risk of getting picked up by her father who has an order of protection against him and regularly carries firearms.

School safety officials called police and the school was put on lockdown as a precaution.

A short time later, officials discovered that the child was already on the bus and headed home.

School officials canceled the lockdown.
