DANBURY, Conn. -- Danbury police responded to a report of gun shots at the Wooster School on Wednesday but quickly ruled the incident a false alarm, according to the NewsTimes.com.
The school's headmaster put the school in lockdown after a teacher called to report hearing gunshots, the NewsTimes.com reported.
It turned out the noise came from the nearby Danbury Airport, where pyrotechnic shells were fired to scare geese away, the NewsTimes.com said.
The shells are fired when birds are gathering in an area that's dangerous to air traffic, the airport told the NewsTimes.com.
