LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Carroll County High School went on lockdown for about 15 minutes Thursday, according to a post on social media from the Carroll County school district. 

Superintendent Bill Hogan called it a "discipline issue" involving a student who is a juvenile, under the age of 18. He said police were called, the issue was handled, and the day continued normally. 

WDRB News asked Hogan if the incident involved a student in possession of a firearm.

Hogan responded, "I'd rather not get into that. I don't feel comfortable releasing" the information.

Hogan cited privacy concerns, in part, because Carrollton and Carroll County are "a small community" and "everyone" would identify the student by the response.

Hogan said parents could draw their own conclusions from his answer.

He added that local police responded to the school's call and dealt with the student "according to what they have to do."

Hogan said all students were safe after a lockdown that occurred after lunch.

Carrollton police department spokesperson Ofc. Tim Gividen could not give details, but said students "were in no danger."
