Shots came from wooded area near Roosevelt

By Washington Post editors

Officers from the Greenbelt Police Department were called to Roosevelt High School about 11:30 a.m. for a report of shots fired in an adjacent wooded area, said Officer Kelly Lawson, a police spokeswoman.

The officers established a perimeter around the area and used a helicopter and dogs to search the woods, but they found no indication of who may have fired the shots, Lawson said. The school was placed on lockdown "out of precaution," Lawson said, but the lockdown has since been lifted.

"A couple of individuals came out of the woods that are across from the high school, fired a couple of shots, and ran back into the woods," she said. The shooting didn't happen on school property, but the principal locked down the school as a precaution, Barbour said.

No one was injured.

It's Eleanor Roosevelt High School not Roosevelt. It is the only school in the country named after Mrs. Roosevelt.
