Two elementary schools get all-clear after lockdowns

Short lockdowns at two elementary schools in Southwest Miami-Dade ended Friday with no injuries, according to police.

Just before dismissal, students and staff at Cutler Ridge and Bel Aire elementary schools were forced to stay put as police investigated a report there was a person with a gun either in, or around one of the schools.

Police searched Bel Aire Elementary but didn’t find any weapons. No information was released about the suspect.

"It’s like a fire alarm went off, but there’s no fire," said Lt. Raul Correa.
