There were earlier reports of a shooting incident in a school in Pahrump, Nevada but it would later be proven to be a case of false alarm.
Police and emergency services responded to the said school in the midst of reports of shooting, placing the school on lockdown. County officials would later clarify, however, that no shots were fired in the school.
The scare began at around 10:30 a.m. on Monday when police were called to respond to a school in Pahrump. It was unclear even then what the original call was about. Still, as precautionary measure,the sheriff’s office said all Nye County and Town of Pahrump government offices have been closed, including the courthouse on Basin Avenue.
The Director of Nye County Emergency Management later said there is no active shooter and no shots were fired.
The Director further clarified that what actually happened that could point to the cause or source of confusion and alarm was when a known felon brought his child to school today. As a result, all of the schools were placed on lockdown.
Sheriff’s deputies are now clearing each school.
This is a developing story and more information are being gathered now on the incident.
