GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

The Job Corps building in Gulfport is on lockdown, but police say there is no threat to the public or anyone at Job Corps. 

A caller reported a man came into the building with a gun Friday around noon. But when police arrived, they couldn't find anyone with a weapon. They've tried to get back in touch with the person who originally made the report to police, but haven't been able to reach them. 

Police are currently outside the Job Corps building questioning a man, but it's not clear if the person is suspected of anything or just a witness. 

Again, police say right now there is no victim, no weapon, and no threat.
