CHAMPAIGN -- Some hunters forced a school to go on lock-down. It happened at St. Matthew Catholic School about fifteen minutes before students were to be released.

Police say they were called for a man with a gun in the parking lot. It turned out to be hunters gearing up for the last day of pheasant hunting. They were loading their trunk in the school's parking lot.

Police say they are still investigating, but currently, no charges have been filed.
