Shots fired after Macon Co. school graduation; all classes canceled Thursday

TUSKEGEE, AL (WSFA) -

Macon County School Superintendent Dr. Jacqueline Brooks confirms to WSFA 12 News that shots were fired after a high school graduation ceremony Wednesday evening. There were no injuries reported.

Dr. Brooks says "because the perpetrators are still at large" classes at all schools within the system are canceled Thursday. All school personnel should still report to work.

The superintendent says the graduation was for Booker T. Washington High School and was being held at the Chappie James Center at Tuskegee University. Dr. Brooks says the shots were fired into the air from outside the facility.

No suspects were immediately known.

Tracey Boleware, Director of Public Relations at Tuskegee University confirmed there were shots fired and that there were no injuries. She said no other information was available since it was not a Tuskegee University function.

WSFA 12 News will continue to follow this developing story and share additional details as they become available.
