‘Loud bangs’ briefly put Westover Elementary in lockdown
STAMFORD — Westover Elementary School was briefly placed in lockdown Friday afternoon after a 911 caller reported hearing “two loud bangs,” police said.
Capt. Richard Conklin said the school was placed into lockdown as a precaution as police investigated the area for any evidence of a shooter or shots fired.
However, police have not found any evidence to suggest there was a shooting, he said.
“We have no confirmation that there were shots fired,” said Lt. Michael Noto. “Someone heard a noise they thought could be a gunshot. We got no other calls of anyone hearing a gun shot.”
At 3:10 p.m., Conklin said the lockdown at the school has been lifted.
