BOZEMAN, Mont. — Bozeman police responded with sirens and lights Friday afternoon afternoon near Bozeman High School.

According to Bozeman City Police, they received a call about a possible domestic situation at an address across the street from the school.

In the initial report, officers were informed that the man involved in the domestic might have had a gun.

As officers responded, several students were outside the high school. An officer reportedly told them to “Get inside. Get inside.”

The school was in the process of starting a shelter-in-place mode, since there was a report of a possible gun near their campus, when police were able to take the man into custody.

For a short time, police had 11th Street closed off with patrol cars while the situation was handled.

The school nor students were not involved at all in this incident other than the students informed by police to get inside, according to Klumb.

However, since there were some students notified, school administration will be contacting parents to let them know what happened in the form of a letter.

Police would not confirm if the man had a gun during the incident.
