I spoke to an officer at RMS about 30 minutes ago; he said there had been shots fired at TMS and possibly the high school. Lovely.

Tazewell City Police said the scare was caused by a man shooting at a coyote.

TAZEWELL, Va.-- Tazewell County Police Chief Brian Hieatt said five shots were fired around 1 p.m. Tuesday near Tazewell Middle School.

The school was placed on lockdown. Hieatt said it turns out a neighbor was firing shots at a coyote. No one was injured. There were no students in the building. Faculty and staff were working inside when the shots were fired.

Hieatt said the man did not violate the law by shooting at the animal, but could face charges because the shots strayed so close to the school. The man's name has not been released yet.

Tazewell County Schools Superintendent, Brenda Lawson, said the incident will not impact the start of school on Wednesday.
