  • The Topsail High School campus in Hampstead is shut down and all other schools in eastern Pender County are on lockdown

The sound of gunshots which prompted reports of an active shooter at a North Carolina high school may have been caused by a malfunctioning water heater.

The Pender County Sheriff's Office is expected to hold a press conference sometime Friday morning. "All of our units are trying to take this person into custody", the dispatcher said. "Pender County Schools is taking all precautions to ensure the safety of students and staff".

However Commissioner George Brown told WECT there is a malfunctioning piece of equipment at the school that sounds like gunfire when it makes a noise.

All schools in eastern Pender County were placed on lockdown.

James Rowell said deputies responded to reports of shots being fired at the school around 6:30 Friday morning.

The school is located near the coast in Hampstead, about 20 miles (32 kilometers) north of Wilmington. It has around 1,300 students enrolled.
