A suspected shooting incident in Savannah High School, Georgia, has seen police and SWAT teams deployed to the scene.

 

Large numbers of police are reported to have responded to an incident near the campus of Savannah High School and Savannah Early College in Georgia, early this morning, Wednesday, November 30.

According to a tweet from Chatham County Schools @SCCPSS, the students have been evacuated while police teams search for a suspected shooter. There are no reports of any injuries at the facility in Chatham County. 

The campus was locked down as a precaution. Helicopters have been seen overhead and a SWAT team has been deployed to the scene. Numerous video footage has appeared on social media showing the heavy presence of the security services at the location.

It has also been reported online that multiple Georgia counties confirmed receiving calls this Wednesday morning reporting shootings in local schools. The facilities were all locked down as a precaution but the suggestions are that these have been hoax calls.
