County Schools Spokesperson James Evans told WGNS, "This is standard procedure and is only precautionary. There was never anyone on campus as the situation was in no way school-related. The principals are sending home messages to their parents to let them know about the precautionary lockdown."

There were absolutely no reports of anyone armed being on any of the Rutherford County School campuses Wednesday (9/27/17).
