Created: 01/30/2014 3:16 PM WDIO.com

An Iron Range school went on lockdown Thursday while authorities searched the property.

At 10 a.m., the St. Louis County Sheriff's Office was dispatched to the Mesabi East High School in Aurora after a live rifle round was found on school grounds.

Authorities said a soft lockdown was activated for students and staff while law enforcement conducted a search. A soft lockdown means that class continued while students and staff are confined to their respective rooms.

Authorities said they found unrelated contraband, but that the school was deemed secure. Staff and students were then allowed to carry on with the remainder of their day.
