The Wayne County Sheriff's Department says an initial report came in just before 11 a.m. this morning of a text message from inside the school of a kidnapping in progress as well as a person with a gun inside the building.
The school district went into their lockdown/lockout procedures as multiple law enforcement agencies arrived on scene quickly.
At approximately 12:30pm, Sheriff Rob Milby addressed the crowd of parents and residents that had gathered outside the entrance to say everyone inside was safe and that it had been a false alarm.
After a separate incident last week and the recent shootings around the country, parents could be seen visibly shaken even after receiving the "all-clear" from Sheriff Milby.
