FISHER, Minn.-A small-town Polk County school went into lockdown as law enforcement investigated a report of a woman walking to the school with a gun.

The Polk County Sheriff's Office responded just before 3 p.m. Wednesday to Fisher High School after a caller said a woman with a gun was headed to the building to pick up her children, according to a news release. The school was placed on lockdown during the early stages of the investigation, the release said.

Officers spoke to the reporting party and suspect, who denied possessing any weapons or making threats toward the school, the release said.

"At this time there is no credible threat to the Fisher High School students or staff," Polk County Sheriff's Sgt. Brian Lundeen said. "This investigation remains active and ongoing."

It's too early to tell if charges will be filed in the case, Lundeen told the Herald. No further information was available Wednesday.
