ROME – John E. Joy Elementary School in Rome was under a shelter-in-place Wednesday morning after a bullet was reportedly found in the school, according to the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff Rob Maciol says deputies responded to the elementary school Wednesday for the shelter-in-place after the bullet was reportedly found.

Maciol says the Sheriff’s Office, school staff, and a school resource officer from the Rome Police Department are investigating the matter, and they’ve determined the students aren’t in any danger.

The elementary school has since returned to normal operations, and an SRO from the Rome Police Department will be at the school for the rest of the day.
