A student brought a fake gun made of rolled up paper to a school in Hartford this morning, which led to a lockdown.

Police said a temporary Code Yellow lockdown was issued at McDonough Expeditionary Learning School, a school for students in grades six through eight.

Everyone is safe and the lockdown has been lifted, according to police. 

NBC Connecticut reached out to the schools, but there was no immediate response.
