Lockdown lifted at Orlando Science Center

ORLANDO, Fla. — The Orlando Science Center was placed on a lockdown Thursday morning because of nearby police activity, a museum spokesman said.

"Since we have camp and custody of children, we are keeping the kids inside today until we get an all-clear from the police," the spokesman said.

Channel 9 contacted the Orlando Police Department to ask what the police activity was concerning.

The lockdown has since been lifted.

No other details were given.
