Construction noise prompts brief school lockdown

Noise likely originating from a work site on Big Pine Key spurred a brief lockdown at Big Pine Academy Thursday morning.

The construction or job site noise was initially mistaken for possible gunshots.

The Sheriff’s Office School Resource Officer, school officials and Deputies followed all appropriate safety precautions during the investigation.

It was quickly determined that no gunshots were fired and the school returned to normal operations thereafter.

There were no injuries reported.
