THE BRONX - Police responded to a report of gunshots outside P.S. Middle School 29 in Melrose this afternoon.

Authorities say they received a report of several shots being fired near the Andrew Jackson Senior Center, about a half-block from the middle school, at 2:30 p.m.

Two middle school students told News 12 that their teachers instructed them to move away from the doors and be quiet during what they described as a “drill.”

That drill lasted around a half-hour, and then the students were dismissed.

News 12 contacted police and the Department of Education about the incident, but has not yet heard back.
