Squirrel in transformer puts Ohio school on alert

Police said a lock-down at an Ohio high school resulted from an errant squirrel. Brookhaven High School in Columbus went on alert shortly after 8 a.m. Monday – about a half-hour into the school day – because of reports that shots had been fired in the area.

WCMH-TV reported investigators found that a noise resembling gunfire had come from an electric transformer malfunctioning after a squirrel got inside.

The school’s precautionary lock-down was lifted shortly after 8:30.
