Hamlet Schools Put on Lockdown

Authorities in Richmond County say there was no threat to students after sounds of gunfire were reported Friday afternoon near two schools in Hamlet. Fairview Heights Elementary and Hamlet Middle Schools were put on lockdown Friday afternoon, but law enforcement found no danger, though it is unclear if they were able to identify the source of the sounds that caused the initial report.

As a safety precaution, students were not allowed on the playground after the lockdown was lifted Friday afternoon.
