Military Funeral Gunfire Causes School Lockdown

An elementary school here in the east was put on lockdown after gunfire was heard in the area.

La Grange Elementary School went on lockdown around 10:30 a.m. It turns out the gunfire was from a military funeral at a cemetery across the street.

A letter is being sent home to parents from the assistant principal telling them at no time were any of the 570 students or staff in danger and they are very proud of the way the children responded to the possible emergency.
