Police: Report of Gunfire at Central H.S. Just Firecrackers | Crime
Macon police say reports of gunfire from within Central High School early Thursday morning turned out to just be firecrackers.
According to a police news release, several 911 calls were placed around 7:22 a.m., reporting shots fired in the Central High lunchroom.
Lt. Andra Grinstead, Macon-Bibb 911 Director, said she and Precinct 3 officers responded, making a "coordinated entrance" as if an "active shooter" were on campus.
That's when officers determined the reports were initiated by a firecracker.
Because of its proximity to Central, Miller Middle School went initiated security measures, according to a news release from Bibb County schools.
No one was injured and classes resumed as normal with students taking their planned final exams.
13WMAZ was first notified by a concerned parent on her way to pick up her children who attend Central and were outside at the time.
School administrators are currently investigating the matter and will send a letter home with students later today with more details, if they become available.
