Windham Middle School went into a precautionary lockdown on Wednesday after a noise complaint regarding possible nearby gunfire.
School Business Administrator Adam Steel informed parents at noon that the complaint came in at 11:30 a.m. According to Steel, the complaint was related to what sounded like shots being fired in the woods behind Golden Brook and Windham Middle School.
Windham Police responded immediately, searched the entire area and reported back that there was no cause for alarm.
A tweet from Eagle-Tribune reporter John Toole indicated that the gunfire may have been from target practice.
Officers will remain on scene as a precaution and the school day will continue in its normal fashion. The district will report back to parents should there be any further developments.
This is the third problem reported in the Windham district since the Sandy Hook shooting incident in Newtown, CT.
Police responded to what was reportedly a "loud bang" at Windham High School on the Monday after the Connecticut school murders, and later in the week a Twitter threat was reportedly made to the Windham district. The FBI was informed on the latter.
