HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) -

A gun scare caused a lockdown at two Hamilton schools Wednesday. 

According to police, two men started playing with airsoft guns in the woods near Wilson Middle School. Because the orange tips on the guns had been removed, witnesses thought the guns were real. 

Both Wilson Middle School and Hamilton High School were put on lockdown for about 30 minutes while police investigated. 

When police got there, the men had already left the woods but were located on Goodman Avenue. 

The identities have not yet been released and police say no charges have been filed.
