FRAMINGHAM – There is NO active shooter at Framingham High School.
SOURCE just spoke to Supt. Bob Tremblay who confirmed there is no active shooter.
A message will be going out to families said Supt. Tremblay just after 10:20 a.m.
Superintendent Tremblay said it was an alarm system error at the high school to SOURCE.
“Students and staff are not in any danger. It was a false alarm. District Administrators and Framingham Police Department are on-site to determine the reason for the alarm. Please do not approach or contact the school. More information will be shared shortly,” said a message that went out to families just before 11 a.m.
Supt. Tremblay told SOURCE the high school’s active shooter alert system was triggered when someone changed the battery.
When it was triggered, students and staff heard an announcement there was an ‘active shooter in J Hall.”
Teachers told students not in that wing of the high school to “run”and leave the school.
Police were in J Hall within minutes. And additional police cruisers arrived shortly afterwards.
