LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Parkview Magnet High School was put on lockdown midday Friday after Little Rock school officials received reports of gunfire near the campus.

Police records show officers responding to the area shortly after 12 p.m.

According to officials with the Little Rock School District, the lockdown was lifted shortly afterward.

Officers at the scene said they have found no evidence of gunfire.

This marks the third time in recent weeks that area schools have gone on lockdown due to reports of gunfire.

Central High School in Little Rock was put on lockdown on October 12 as officers responded to reports of gunfire just south of the campus.

Just two days later on October 14, an off-campus shooting in which a student was injured put North Little Rock High School on lockdown.
