Security around schools nationwide is heightened in the wake of the tragedy in Connecticut, and many are jittery about the slightest circumstance in the vicinity of a school campus.

This morning, around 8AM, a shot was heard near Birdville Elementary School, and as a result, the school campus was put in lockdown. Additionally, Shannon Learning Center nearby was also in lockdown as Haltom Police searched for the source of the reported shot.

The all-clear has now been given, and the lockdown has been lifted. Unconfirmed reports from the Birdville Elementary’s official Facebook page state that a nearby domestic disturbance may have been the cause of the precautionary lockdown.
