A Fort Lauderdale elementary school was placed on lockdown Monday morning after reports of shots fired in the area.
Broward Schools officials say Broward Sheriff's officers received calls of shots fired near North Andrews Gardens Elementary School. In turn, the school was placed on lockdown.
Just before noon, the Broward Sheriff’s Office issued the all-clear. Officials now believe that the call was a hoax.
Still, parents were fearful for their children’s safety and frustrated at the unknown caller. Students were also scared after hearing that police locked down their campus.
Detectives have not yet identified the caller.
