Shots Fired Near School

A domestic dispute near a Lubbock elementary school had school officials on alert Wednesday afternoon. Around two o'clock Wednesday afternoon a teacher at Martin Elementary called police saying she heard gunshots.

All the kids were escorted inside the building and the police arrived just minutes later. No one was hurt. Police say two shots were fired, but the school was not in danger. "The children were brought inside upon hearing the disturbance. That would always be our policy if there was a threat outside to bring kids and be sure were in place," said Beth Burkhalter, Martin Elementary Principal.

Police are still investigating what happened.
