ASBURY PARK — A comment made against Asbury Park High School to a woman walking her dog led to a lockdown of the school Thursday morning.

After being notified by police, the school was put on a "modified lockdown" while police investigated the threat. Nothing was found and the lockdown was lifted.

"Although a police presence at or in the area of the schools is evident, at no time was there an active shooter present at any of the schools," Casey said in a statement.

An invesigation into the threat is ongoing.

Casey asked anyone with information about this incident to call Asbury Park police at 732-774-1300 Option 0.
