A Bronx elementary school was briefly placed on lockdown Tuesday after police say a student told a teacher someone was inside with a gun.

It happened at the Crotona Park West School located at 1701 Fulton Avenue in Bathgate.

The entire campus, which houses several schools, was locked down for a short time while police investigated.

The Department of Education says the weapon turned out to be a toy gun.
