UPDATE - Reno Police say there were no shots fired. The lock down went on for as long as it did because police were unsuccessful in getting ahold of the people in question, as they were sleeping inside their home.

Police say they're unsure what the sound was that witnesses say they heard.

UPDATE - 4:48P - Students are being released in a controlled release.

UPDATE - 4:40P - According to Washoe County School Police, the lock down went into effect at 3:30pm. There is no word yet on whether or not Reno Police have made contact with a person they believe is in a home on Cannan Street. The lock down started because witnesses say they heard shots fired in the area, and police believe the person in the home might be connected.

Rita Cannan was principal of my elementary school (Mary S. Doten on West Fifth Street), and had someone told her to lock down Mary S. Doten "code yellow" she would have said "BS, I'll handle it," and handled it without further adieu. Of course, she was a principal, an endeavor seldom seen today. Code Yellow? Good grief... (PS might be nice if you included some geographic reference to the school. You could Google it...)
