Investigation Into Reported Shots Fired Prompts Hartford Elementary School Lockdown

Alfred E. Burr Elementary School in Hartford was placed on a precautionary lockdown Tuesday as police investigated reported shots fired on Bond Street.

The school was locked down as a precaution as police chased down possible people involved, but no students were in danger at any point, police said. Students were in the school at the time of the lockdown, which has since been lifted.

“The school was locked due to outside police matters," Hartford public school leaders said.

A K9 unit is searching for the people involved. It's unclear at this time how many people police are looking for in connection to the incident.

It's unknown whether anyone was injured.

Hartford police say that the public never was and isn't in danger.

Police are still in the area investigating and it's unclear whether there is still an impact to the school.
