Four schools in St. Paul were put on precautionary lockdown after a report of shots fired Thursday.

WCCO says the shots were fired just before noon, near the intersection of Selby Avenue and Victoria Avenue.

Lockdown at four schools – Central Senior High School, J.J. Hill Montessori Magnet School, and Maxfield elementary and Obama elementary – started around noon and lasted for about 30 minutes, the Pioneer Press says.

KSTP reports police are looking for a suspect who ran toward I-94.

Nobody was injured.
