GRANTS PASS, Ore. -- Police responded to false alarm of a school shooting at Fruitdale Elementary School Thursday morning.
Just after 7:30 a.m., police received a call from a parent who reported their child called them and yelled, "Help me, Daddy!" The parent said they'd heard children screaming in the background, so the parent thought there was a potential school shooting.

Officers responded to the scene in less than two minutes. They determined there was no actual emergency.

As a precaution, officers from the Grants Pass Department of Public Safety searched the other schools in Grants Pass, and contacted others schools in Josephine County. There were no emergencies at any of the schools.
