Police were called to Euclid High School near Cleveland after someone reported an active shooter, but no evidence of a shooting was found and it was later determined to be a hoax, officials say. All students are safe.

The incident began at about 8 a.m. on Monday when someone called 911 and reported an “active shooter” at Euclid High School on East 222nd Street. The school was immediately put on a modified lockdown.

Police arrived and began a sweep of the building, but by 8:30 a.m., there was no evidence of a shooting and there were no reports of injuries. It’s unclear who called 911.

“Euclid HS went into a modified lockdown after the Euclid Police Department received a hoax call,” Euclid Schools said. “EPD and school administrators acted quickly and swept the building for any possible threat. Once again, all students are safe.”
