Extra precautions taken at schools after report of shots being fired

A report of a man firing a gun at a park caused a couple of schools to take extra precautions Tuesday afternoon.

Around 2:30 p.m., Lexington Police say they received a report of a man firing a gun at Meadowbrook Park, just off Wilson Downing Road.

That's near Southern Elementary and Southern Middle schools.

Since the report came in around dismissal time, Fayette County school officials say students who were outside at the time came back inside.

School police also escorted students to buses, and called parents to have them pick up students who usually walk home.

Police searched the area, but couldn't find any evidence of an actual shooting in the park.

The schools gave the all clear by dismissal time.
