Police: No truth to shooting at Carver H.S.

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Police say there's no truth to rumors that a student was shot at Carver High School Monday.

Nearly 50 Montgomery Police officers and Fire medics responded to Carver upon receiving a 911 call reporting that a student had been shot in a school bathroom. The call was received at approximately 1:35 p.m., and the school immediately was placed on lockdown.

Officers searched the school and said they found no evidence of a shooting, no shooting victim, and nothing that would substantiate the report of a school shooting. Police located and accounted for the alleged victim, who was safe and unharmed.

The Montgomery Police Department continues to investigate the circumstances of the call. Under the Code of Alabama, rendering a false alarm is a Class A misdemeanor or Class C felony.

A Class A misdemeanor can result in a year in prison; a Class C felony can result in up to 10 years in prison.

Section 13A-10-8

Rendering a false alarm.

(a) A person commits the crime of rendering a false alarm if he knowingly causes a false alarm of fire or other emergency involving danger to person or property to be transmitted to or within an official or volunteer fire department or any other governmental agency or to be transmitted to or within a hospital or nursing home or any building housing handicapped or immobile people. 

(b) Rendering a false alarm except a false alarm concerning a hospital or nursing home or other building housing handicapped or immobile people to or within an official or volunteer fire department or any other governmental agency is a Class A misdemeanor. Rendering a false alarm concerning or to or within a hospital or nursing home or any building housing handicapped or immobile people shall be a Class C felony. 

(Acts 1977, No. 607, p. 812, §4535; Acts 1979, No. 79-664, p. 1163, §1; Acts 1981, No. 81-658.)
