Tulsa students released after school lockdown

Posted: Updated:

TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Students at a north Tulsa elementary school that was locked down for nearly two hours have been released to their parents.

Police say Celia Clinton Elementary was locked down with the children inside about 2 p.m. Tuesday when gunshots were reported near the school.

Police Officer Leland Ashley says a group of parents were outside the school when they heard gunshots and saw a man in a yard just north of the school firing a weapon. The parents ran into the school and notified staff who called police.

Ashley says no students are injured and there is no indication the man was shooting at the school - but that it wasn't clear what the man was firing at.

The incident is under investigation.
