Lockdowns at three Davenport schools lifted amid police investigation

Three Davenport schools were placed on lockdown amid a police investigation in a nearby neighborhood.

DAVENPORT, Iowa -- Three Davenport schools were placed on a brief lockdown amid a police investigation in a nearby neighborhood.

An investigation into a report of gunfire brought police to the 2100 block of West 6th Street around noon on Thursday, November 21, according to spokesman Mike Vondran from the Davenport School District.

Children's Village West, Smart Intermediate, and Monroe Elementary Schools were all placed on lockdown, said Vondran.  He confirmed that the investigation was not on any of these schools' property, but they were asked to lock down as a precaution.

The lockdown was lifted within about 30 minutes.

Vondran said none of the students were in harms way during the incident.
