CHAMBLEE, Ga. (AP) -- A school in suburban Atlanta was placed on lockdown after a teen carrying a gun was arrested near campus.

DeKalb County Schools spokesman Quinn Hudson says no injuries were reported an after-school activities have been canceled. WSB-TV reports a neighbor saw the teen carrying a gun and called police.

Additional information on the teen who was arrested was not immediately available.
