Olentangy Orange High School and Middle School were put on lockdown early Thursday morning while investigators looked into a reported shooting nearby.

The Delaware County Sheriff's Office says they were investigating a report of someone shooting at a car on Whites Court, in a neighborhood near the schools. No one was injured, but deputies were asking people on nearby streets to stay in their homes until they are given the all-clear. No buses were being allowed on the streets.

Deputies cleared the scene about an hour later and the lockdown was lifted.

The Sheriff's Office says extra deputies will be on hand for the schools for extra peace of mind.
