James Rowell said the crews are still searching the building as a precaution, but they have not found any evidence of an active shooter.

The commissioner, identified as George Brown, said the noise that sounded like gunfire may have been a piece of equipment at the school that has been malfunctioning in recent days. "Law enforcement responded immediately and it has been determined there is no shooter and no weapon".
