LOUISVILLE, Kentucky — Police say one child has been injured and a high school has been evacuated after a report of weapons seen on the campus in Louisville, Kentucky.

Spokeswoman Alicia Smiley says the child sustained non-life threatening injuries Tuesday. Smiley says a parent is with the child.

Smiley would not say if the child was a student or describe the nature of the injuries.

Students were led from Fern CrekTraditional High School in the southern part of the city. Video from television stations showed police escorting students with their hands over their heads to a nearby softball field.

Police cars surrounded the 91-year-old school.

Messages left by The Associated Press for a spokesman for Jefferson County Public Schools and MetroSafe, the city’s emergency management department, were not immediately returned.
