LAFAYETTE, Colo. (KDVR) – Centaurus High School in Lafayette was placed on lockdown Wednesday morning, and police are saying it appears to be a false alarm.

No students or staff have been injured, according to Lafayette police.

A teacher had reported hearing gunshots in or around the school, and the school activated a lockdown. Police arrived at the school and entered it to search for signs of shots being fired.

Police notified parents of the lockdown, and a local elementary school and a middle school near Centaurus High School were placed on lockout.

Centaurus High School is currently on a hybrid school schedule, with only a portion of the student body actually in the building.

South Boulder Road was closed near the high school while police investigated the incident.

This is a developing story. Details will be provided as they are received.
