UPDATE : TUESDAY, 11:58 A.M.
A reported shooting touched off fears this morning and sent a school district into lockdown mode in Anderson County.
Taylor said the suspected shooter left the area in a vehicle and never went to any school, but the dog bite victim ran from the area and wound up at the school.
“The shooting has nothing to do with the school, but Westwood Independent School District did in fact what they should have done and locked down the schools. When I went up there just a bit ago to explain to them what was going on they were still on lockdown and were allowing parents to pick up their children if they wanted,” he said.
Taylor said the investigation is ongoing and as new details emerge he would release them.
However, he reiterated at no time was there a shooter on any campus.
