Posted: Updated:

QUEEN ANNE'S CO., Md. - A local school locked down, after hearing about the Elementary School shooing in Connecticut this morning.

Officials from Queen Anne's County Board of Education reportedly called law enforcement officials after they apparently received a call around 1:00 PM saying "lock it down" repeatedly. This call lead school board officials to lock down all schools in the district. Authorities including State troopers, Queen Anne's County Sheriff's Office deputies and officers from the Centreville Police Department responded to each of the schools.

Police were assigned to each school and they worked with school security staff and executed pre-planned emergency response procedures. State Police officials say that other than the 1:00 PM phone call, there were no more incidents reported. Lock downs were lifted at the end of the school day at all schools. Police remained on the scene as students left each school.

An investigation into the call is still on-going, they are apparently attempting to identify the caller. Anyone with information about the call is asked to contact State Police at the Centreville Barrack at 410-758-1101.
