Gunfire was heard Wednesday night near Leopold Elementary School, the south side school that went into lockdown Wednesday afternoon after reports of shots fired nearby, Madison police reported.

The second gunfire incident near the school in the same day was reported at about 8 p.m., police said in a news release.

Officers found two shell casings in the 2600 block of Ardsley Court, about three blocks from the school located Post Road.

"There was no evidence anybody or any property was struck," said Sgt. Karen Krahn in the release.

Early Wednesday afternoon, shots were reportedly fired near Turbot Drive, Pike Drive and Traceway Drive, all about a block from the school.

School officials put the elementary school into lockdown until officers could investigate and clear the scene.

"Classes were not disrupted and school was released on schedule when police advised us it was safe to do so," said Rachel Strauch-Nelson of the Madison Metropolitan School District.
