BREAKING NEWS: Elementary school locked down following nearby drive-by shooting


Cowan Road Elementary School is on lockdown as a result of an alleged drive-by shooting incident that occurred in its vicinity.

According to Spalding County Sheriff Darrell Dix, the incident did not involve the elementary school.

“There were some shots fired over in the Hallmark subdivision, so just out of caution, we locked the school down,” Dix said. “It was not at the school. It wasn’t at the school. It was at the neighborhood across from the school.”

Dix said the drive-by is under investigation.

“There was allegedly a guy standing on the corner, and someone drove by and fired some shots at him,” Dix said. “It was reported by a third party.”

Dix said some information on the shooting has been obtained.

“I have investigators over there right now,” he said, adding that they do have a description of the vehicle involved in the incident.
