False Alarm Led to Massive Police Presence in New Haven

A robbery near Roberto Clemente school in New Haven and the discharge of a BB gun led to lockdown at the school and the Cornell Scott Hill Health Center and Monday and there was a large police presence after a false report of an active shooter at the health facility, according to police.

Police said a BB hit a window at the Roberto Clemente school and there was a lockdown. A notification system also goes out to a particular radius, which included the Cornell Scott Hill Health Center, police said.

The health center went into lockdown and someone inside the building reached out to a family member about a possible shooter, police said. The family member misunderstood, then called 911 and said there was an active shooter at the health center, according to police.

Police responded to the building and are searching it as a precaution.

“There is no danger to the public,” police said.
