ST. LOUIS — Authorities gave the ‘all clear’ Tuesday morning at Kirkwood High School after reports of gunshots delayed school and brought in multiple police agencies.

Police blocked several entrances to the Kirkwood High School campus and did not allow students on campus.

Kirkwood is a suburb of St. Louis.

After investigating, police determined a custodian mistakenly thought light bulbs breaking was the sound of gunfire.
