Lockdown lifted on Shawnee elementary school

Posted: Updated:

A Shawnee elementary school was temporarily placed on lockdown after reports of gunshots in the area.

Nieman Elementary, located near the intersection of 67th Street and Nieman Road, was put on lockdown about 3 p.m. It was lifted about when school was to be let out, and kids were dismissed a little late.

Officials said they got a call that there was a possible gunshot in the area, so the school was locked down as a precaution.

Officials also said there is construction going on nearby, so they are not ruling out that the noise could have come from that. They are still working to determine what caused the noise.
