TULSA, Oklahoma -

Nathan Hale High School was on lockdown Friday morning after a student handed out bullets as Christmas gifts, according to Chris Payne of Tulsa Public Schools. Campus police were able to recover the bullets that had been handed out.

"We found fewer than a dozen and no gun," said Public Information Officer Chris Payne.

"There will be consequences for the student who brought them. I think it's probably going to be fairly significant," he said.
