Police investigate shots fired near Westside Elementary School

ROANOKE -

Captain Monti Lee with Roanoke Police tells us that at around 11 a.m. people saw vehicles on the corner of Hershberger Rd. and Westside Blvd. Police say gunshots were fired from "at least one vehicle into the other."

This prompted Westside Elementary School to go under a precautionary "shelter in place."

However, Roanoke City Schools tell WSLS that the shelter-in-place has already been lifted.

Police don't believe the incident is connected with the school.

An Investigation is underway, and police haven't yet found the vehicle or anyone involved.
