Kiel Schools Closed after Report of Possible Gunshots Outside HS

Schools
in the Kiel School
District
are closed today after a staff member at Kiel High
School
thought they heard gunshots near the main
entrance to the school early this morning. Police arrived at the school just
before 6:45 and the building was put on lockdown. Around 20 people were
evacuated from the building and buses were rerouted to New Holstein where
parents were sent to pick up their kids. Police say there is no confirmation at
this time that any shots were fired. Areas around the building are being
searched. Tuesday, Kiel Police were made aware of a rumor that a shooting would
take place at the high school today. Investigators say there was no evidence to
support that rumor.
