Extra Police Presence at Naugatuck School After Shots in Woods

Police said gunshots reported from the woods in the area of Andrew Mountain Road/Andrew Avenue extension were no threat to Andrew Avenue School, but the school was locked down briefly as a precaution and police will remain at the scene for the rest of the day.

At 8:55 a.m. on Wednesday, Naugatuck Police responded to the area.

Because the Andrew Avenue School is located close to where the shots were heard, the school was notified and locked down as a precaution while officers investigated.

Police searched, found no one and the lockdown was canceled.

However, the Naugatuck Police Department will have an office at the school for the remainder of the school day.
