BIG ISLAND (HawaiiNewsNow) - Kealakehe High School went into lockdown Tuesday morning after security discovered a trespasser with a weapon on campus.

According to Department of Education spokesperson Sandy Goya, campus security spotted the male away from the classrooms, but decided to go into lockdown since classes were about to end.
