LAUREL, MS (WDAM) -

***WARNING. Audio in video may be considered offensive to some*** 

Newly obtained video from Laurel High School shows a chaotic scene after a temporary lockdown Friday morning. 

The video depicts dozens of students running the halls blasting music. 

The video has since gone viral, garnering over 130,000 views. 

The caption of the video read, "Laurel High School Made The Principal Go Crazy #SeniorPrank wit the #Jukeboxchallenge."

MOBILE USERS: Watch the video here. 

The prank sent the school into a temporary lock down, according to Laurel School District Superintendent Chuck Benigno. 

Benigno issued a statement Friday morning stating that two students ran through the halls blowing air horns. 

He then said the school was put on lock down briefly just to keep students in their classrooms so teachers could assess the situation. 

Seven On Your Side reached out to The Laurel School District for comment on the conflicting statement compared to the video, but has not received a response as of late Friday afternoon.
