A Manatee County middle school went on lockdown Friday after someone fired a gun in the air on school grounds, authorities said.

It happened at Johnson Middle School in Bradenton.

The lockdown is lifted and kids have all gone home for the day.

The two fled the scene and the school went on lockdown.

Deputies are looking for the two men. They are described as two black males, possibly teenagers, one wearing all black and one wearing all white. The suspects were seen on one bicycle prior to the shooting.
