(West Fargo, ND) -- An aggravated assault in West Fargo causing a brief panic at multiple schools in the area.
West Fargo Police say at approximately 9:05 a.m. Tuesday officers responded to a report of aggravated assault in the area of 9th Street and 13th Avenue East. The suspect was seen running eastbound from the scene which led to, out of abundance of caution, West Fargo High School, Willow Park Elementary School, Eastwood Elementary and L.E. Berger Elementary being put on a hallway closure.
There was no direct threat to the schools or the students.
As of now the hallway closure in the schools have been lifted. The situation is still considered active, however.
