Waterbury, CT- 24 September 2013-092413CM02-  Waterbury police responded in force after Saint Mary School on Cole Street was locked down Tuesday afternoon after they received a report that a gunman was in the basement of a building on school grounds. A police investigation determined that there was no intruder, nor any threat to the school. A “story” about a man with a gun appears to have circulated among fourth and fifth graders on Tuesday, which eventually made its way to a teacher and sparked the lockdown at about 1:50 p.m. Police reacted to the report immediately and sent teams of officers to search four buildings on the school grounds and no gunman was found.
