MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Shelby County Schools says one of their campuses is on lockdown Thursday due to a police investigation.

The district’s media relations office says Gordon Elementary was placed on a precautionary lockdown while police respond to shots fired in the area.

The lockdown is out of an abundance of caution, according to the district, and the investigation is unrelated to the school.

No other information was immediately available.
