Collierville High was placed in lock-down for 15 minutes Thursday after a motorist spotted three armed men in camouflage walk from a school parking lot into woods next to the campus.
Police surrounded the area, arrested the suspects and discovered they had two plastic toy weapons, a pellet gun, a knife and video camera.
"They said they were going to film some type of documentary in the woods," Police Chief Larry Goodwin said.
A passing motorist had told the deputy that three males dressed in camouflage left a vehicle parked in the lot on the west side of campus, off Frank Road.
They appeared to have firearms as they entered the wooded area, police Lt. David Townsend said.
