A Norman high school was locked down briefly after police got into a foot chase with a student suspected of selling marijuana.

Norman Public Schools spokeswoman Shelly Hickman says Norman North High School was placed on lockdown for about 45 minutes Monday afternoon while police took the male student into custody.

Hickman says police and school administrators were interviewing the student Monday afternoon when the student got up and ran from the room.

The school was briefly placed on lockdown while police chased the student and then detained him.

Hickman says a subsequent search of the student's vehicle turned up marijuana and a firearm — but she says at no time were students in danger.

She says the student faces an automatic one-year suspension.
