Montgomery County Police responded to reports of gunshots at the neighboring Woodmoor shopping center at approximately 1PM on Tuesday, along Colesville Rd near University Blvd East.

The incident sent Blair High School into a lockdown from 1:18pm until 1:29pm and remained in a shelter-in-place until 1:40pm, when it was determined that the disturbance involved fireworks and were not gunshots. Montgomery County Police maintained an increased presence in area following the incident and Blair High School principal Renay Johnson tweeted the following at 1:50pm, “We will have dismissal as scheduled today.
