GREENBELT, Md. (AP) Police have reopened a Greenbelt high school after shots were fired nearby.

Prince George's County public schools spokeswoman Tanzi West Barbour says a couple of people came out of the woods next to Eleanor Roosevelt High School, fired shots and then ran back into the woods Tuesday morning. West Barbour says the shooting happened across the street and not on school property. No one was injured.

Greenbelt police spokeswoman Officer Kelly Lawson says the school was locked down as a precaution. Lawson says officers searched the area by helicopter and on the ground but did not find anyone.
