Prank 911 call puts two Casselberry schools on lockdown


CASSELBERRY, Fla. - Two schools in Casselberry were put on lockdown Thursday afternoon after someone called 911 and claimed there was an active shooter on campus.

The call turned out to be a hoax but that didn’t stop parents from picking up their children at South Seminole Middle School and Casselberry Elementary School.

Authorities said the call came in about 2:30 p.m. from a kid on cellphone saying there was an active shooter at South Seminole Middle School, which shares property with Casselberry Elementary.

Casselberry police said the 911 call, however, was hoax, and they're looking for the child who placed it.

Authorities searched both campuses and found nothing.
