FRAMINGHAM – Members of the Framingham High School boys swim & dive team found shell casings in a locker in the Keefe Technical pool locker room upon arriving to practice yesterday, December 6.
The Framingham High students immediately informed their coach who brought the casings to Keefe Technical High School administrators.
Framingham Police were called “regards to six shell casings located in a locker near the pool area,” said Framingham Police spokesperson Lt. Rachel Mickens.
Mass State Police were called in with two canines to do a search of the entire school which produced negative results (nothing further was found), said Lt, Mickens.
“It is unclear how long the casings were in this locker,” said Lt. Mickens.
The matter is currently under police investigation.
Keefe Tech Principal Shannon Snow said the pool area of the school is not accessible to Keefe Technical students. The high school does not have a swim team, although it hosts several other MetroWest swim teams including Natick & Framingham high schools.
“Hundreds of individuals” have used the pool are over the last few days, said Principal Snow.
“We are not aware of any threat to the school, and we have no evidence to suggest that there was ever a weapon or live ammunition in our school building,” said Principal Snow.
“In an abundance of caution we immediately called the Framingham Police Department, and followed their recommendation to have ballistic detection K9s go through the school building. No concerns were found,” said Principal Snow.
