Nearby shooting leads to lockdown at Coral Reef High School

A southwest Miami-Dade County high school was briefly placed on lockdown Tuesday morning after a nearby shooting, Miami-Dade police said.

Coral Reef High School was placed on lockdown as a precaution, a Miami-Dade County Public Schools spokeswoman told Local 10 News. The lockdown was later lifted.

She said the lockdown was related to a non-school-related incident in the area.

"All students are safely being instructed in their classrooms under the supervision of their teachers," a message to parents said. "There is no current threat to any student in the school."

Richmond Heights Middle School was also placed on lockdown.

A black Ford Expedition with a yellow tarp covering the back of it could be seen behind police tape.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue said two victims were taken to an area hospital.

Police said Southwest 100th to Southwest 104th avenues were closed between Southwest 152nd and Southwest 153rd streets during the shooting investigation.
