LAKE OSWEGO, OR (KPTV) -

Three schools were put into lockdown Wednesday while police investigated the possibility of shots fired at a nearby park.

Officers now believe it was fireworks, not gunfire.

Around 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, a parks employee thought he heard gunshots and called police. Officers and a K-9 team were called to the scene.

Police said there were no reports of anyone hit by gunfire.

The locked down schools were releasing students for the day by 4 p.m.
