BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — Bridgeport Police temporarily locked down three schools after they received a 911 call reporting shots fired near Daniels Avenue and Trumbull Avenue on Wednesday, police said.

The lockdown at each school was lifted minutes after officers found no trace of a victim or suspect, police said.
