A Twitter post from the St. Mary's County Sheriff's Office asked parents not to report to the school due to the incident, but to go to a high school in nearby Leonardtown instead. 

Agents of the were Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were traveling to the school to assist with the investigation.
