In addition to the high school located at 2305 Pierce Street, Lumberg Elementary and Edgewater Elementary Schools went on lockout status. Lockdown status is different than lock down. It means no one is allowed inside the school but classes are resuming as normal. All schools have since reopened.

No one was hurt in the incident. No students were inside the building at the time, which was about 9:30 a.m.

Authorities said they were searching for a suspect or suspects. They said someone was firing a weapon multiple times nearby.
