Police: No gunshots in western Sioux Falls; disorderly teens cited

Posted: Updated:

Three juveniles put police on alert this afternoon and almost shut down a Sioux Falls elementary school.

Around 2:09 p.m., someone called police for a suspected weapons violation. The reporting party told officers they heard someone shoot something near Tayberry Ave. and Legacy St.

Ben Schumacher, communications specialist for the Sioux Falls School District, said Discovery Elementary was prepared to lock down if police gave indication that a threat was present.

Sioux Falls Police Public Information Officer Sam Clemens said the shooting suspects were actually three juveniles shooting fireworks out of a vehicle. They face possible citations, but no arrests will be made, Clemens said.
