A police investigation into a possible attack at a vocational school in western Germany was the result of a false alarm, a local government spokesman said on Wednesday.
“There is currently no evidence that a perpetrator is in the vicinity,” a police spokesman said, without giving further details.
He said that the police launched their operation at about 11 a.m. after the school in Menden sounded an alarm.
The report said that students had been asked to lock themselves inside their classrooms and were communicating via social media.
