School officials say the incident occurred around 2 a.m. in the 1800 block of Richardson Street. When police arrived, they went into the woods behind the home and heard gunshots. A perimeter was set up around the area as police searched for the suspect.
For the safety of students, police and school officials decided it was best to delay school.
