Officers were dispatched to Collegiate High school located at 101 Baldwin for reports of a shooting in progress. Upon receiving the call, CCPD responded and secured the perimeter and immediately began clearing the campus.

At this time, officers have found no evidence to suggest that there is an active threat or that a shooting occurred at the location. Although we believe the phone call was a hoax, officers will conduct a thorough search of the campus.
