FRANKFORT, N.Y. (UPDATED) – The Frankfort-Schuyler school district was under a ‘hold in place’ for a short time Tuesday afternoon after a school resource officer reported hearing shots fired near the elementary school.
Another school employee also confirmed hearing what sounded like gunshots.
Police responded to the school around 2 p.m., while the elementary school was in the middle of dismissal.
