Superintendent: There was no shooting at Belfair school

A student has been taken into custody after reportedly bringing a gun to a middle school west of Seattle late Wednesday morning, according to local media.

This is a developing story.

[12:03 p.m.] "We have not found anyone injured as of now", The Mason County Sheriff's Office tweeted.

North Mason is next to Hawkins in Belfair.

The school went into lockdown after multiple calls to 911 reported a student with a gun and possibly shots fired in the school's cafeteria and gym. "We are clearing the school now".


When officers arrived, they learned there was no active shooter in the school. We are working to learn where the conflicting reports came from.

Law enforcement are on the scene and are clearing the school.

Reports of an active shooter on campus drew a heavy law-enforcement response to the school of about 452 students.

Kiro 7 and The Kitsap Sun are reporting that the school is on lockdown and that the Mason County Sheriff is on scene.

The message to parents at this time is to "hold tight" until the situation is stabilized.
