Police and other emergency services in Florida were called to a possible active shooter at the North Broward Preparatory School in Coconut Creek, but it turned out to be a false alarm, local officials have confirmed.





The incident began just before 10 a.m. ET on Thursday when officers were called to reports of a shooting at the preparatory school, which is just southwest of Boca Raton. It is believed that a teacher may have heard a sound that was mistaken for a gunshot.

As a result, the school was put on a Code Red lockdown and a large number of police officers responded to the scene. Students at the school shared video footage of armed police officers going through the school, but no evidence was found to suggest that shots had been fired.

No one was injured.

North Broward Preparatory School is less than 7 miles from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, where a gunman opened fire on Wednesday, killing 17 people and injuring more than a dozen others.
