ST. LOUIS – Many first-responders were called to St. Mary’s High School in south St. Louis this morning. Police got a call about a shooting to their non-emergency number. It turned out to be a false alarm.
“We have no indication at this time to believe any incident occurred,” said STLMPD in a statement to FOX 2.
Dozens of police cars gathered Tuesday morning at St. Mary’s High School in St. Louis in response to the situation. The high school is located in the 4700 block of South Grand Avenue in the Dutchtown neighborhood of south St. Louis. The school is a Catholic, archdiocesan, all-boys high school.
Police cleared the scene by around 10:30 a.m. Students were dismissed by 11 a.m. St. Mary’s High School is off the rest of the week due to Thanksgiving break.
Last month, police responded to a shooting at Central Visual and Performing Arts High School in St. Louis. Two people and the gunman died in that shooting, while several others were hurt.
