GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Green Bay police say two people are in custody after a report of a person with a gun forced the evacuation of a high school.

Police Lt. Chad Ramos says a pellet gun was found Monday at Green Bay East High School.

District officials say about 200 students were in school when reports of a gun -- and squad cars -- started flooding in at about 9 a.m.

A Green Bay television station reports as more officers showed up -- some donning rifles and bulletproof vests -- students began streaming out of the school in groups.

District spokeswoman Lori Blakeslee says about 200 students were sent to a middle school and have since been reunited with their families.

No one was hurt.

The district says classes will resume Tuesday.
