Police Responding to Reports of Active Shooter at North Carolina High School”

Police are responding to reports of an "active shooter" at a school in North Carolina, America, which officials have suggested may have been caused by malfunctioning equipment.

A parent told WWAY the school district announced that all schools on the eastern side of Pender County are on lockdown.

Captain James Rowell told WECT the school remained an "active scene" but that there were no reported injuries as of 7am local time.

He said deputies did find an HVAC unit that was malfunctioning and making sounds similar to gunshots.

However, after police investigated the scene, they determined there was no active shooter and that the noises heard inside the school were from a water heater that was loudly malfunctioning.

News of a possible active shooter at the school has undoubtedly alarmed many parents in light of the mass shooting late Wednesday night in Souther California at a country western bar that left 13 people dead, including the suspected gunman who apparently killed himself.

Authorities were alerted around 6:30 a.m., according to ABC11, The News & Observer's media partner.

The school is located near the coast in Hampstead, about 20 miles (32 kilometers) north of Wilmington.

In May, an 18-year-old student was found in the school's parking lot with a large knife strapped to his leg and three other knives.
