Attleboro police said Wamsutta Middle School and Hyman Fine Elementary School went on lockdown after middle school students told their teacher they saw a man outside during recess who then ran into the trees nearby, the Attleboro Sun Chronicle said
But police searched the area and didn’t find anyone.
Initial news reports indicated the man had a gun.
At a 2 p.m. news conference, police Sgt. Arthur Brillon said the reports were “credible” from four students and that’s why action was taken, the Chronicle said.
The situation appeared to be resolved without incident.
