A school district spokesman says a shooting on a street in front of an elementary school in Ohio led to a precautionary lockdown of the building, but no children were injured or involved in the shooting.
Columbus City Schools spokesman Andrew Marcelain said he had few details about the Thursday afternoon shooting near Liberty Elementary School.
He says children are dismissed at about 3:30 p.m. local time, and were quickly taken back inside when the shooting occurred.
