NEW PRAGUE, Minn. (AP) — A 911 call in which a caller claimed several
people had been gunned down at a school in southern Minnesota was
likely a hoax, a county sheriff said Wednesday.
The call early Wednesday prompted authorities to lock down the middle
school, high school and Central Education Campus buildings in New
Prague, 45 miles southwest of Minneapolis. Scott County Sheriff Kevin
Studnicka said all students and staff are safe.
Officers have started to clear the schools' buildings, Studnicka said.
The sheriff said dispatchers took a 911 call from a male caller about 8 a.m. who said he was inside one of the school buildings.
"He claimed he needed help because there was a shooter in the
building with an AK-47 and that there were a couple of victims,"
Studnicka said. When dispatchers asked for the caller's cellphone
number, he claimed it was a new phone and he didn't know the number, the
Emergency vehicles from several police departments converged on the
middle school, a red brick building on the north side of New Prague,
about 45 miles southwest of Minneapolis. Parents were directed to a
church. Scott County Sheriff's Sgt. John Kvasnick said students were to
be sent home at 10:30 a.m.
Studnicka said there was no evidence of a shooting or of a person
with a gun. Kvasnick confirmed that no one was hurt and nothing was
found in a search of the middle school.
The middle and high schools have a combined enrollment of 2,067.
