USD 266 and Maize police are looking into the false report of a shooting at Maize South High.
Law enforcement were immediately headed to the school, leading to some confusion as people across Wichita noticed a heavy law enforcement presence heading west. It was quickly determined that the call was false, though you will see law enforcement at the school as they investigate the call.
A resource officer was at the school when the report was made, and was able to determine there was no shooter almost immediately. The call was determined to be false as Maize officers arrived at the school.
Investigators are working to find how the shooting was reported to Sedgwick County dispatchers, and who made the report.
