Shots fired prompt a school district to go on lockdown

A lockdown has been lifted at the Monte Alto Independent School District.

Superintendent Olivia Almanza Pena told Action 4 that shots were heard near the area prompting her to immediately lockdown the entire district at about 7:30 a.m. Friday.

She said all three campuses were closed down for 30 minutes while authorities were alerted.

The sheriff TMs department combed the area and concluded that the shots heard were from people nearby actually hunting.

The superintendent said they got the all clear signal from deputies and classes have already resumed.
