Granger High School and West Lake Junior High School, both in the area of 3700 South and 3600 West, were ordered to shelter shortly after the incident was reported, according to the Granite School District.

The shelter in place order was lifted about a half-hour later.

"School is proceeding as normal," the school district said on Twitter. "We appreciate your patience and support as we work to keep kids safe."

Students and patrons were not allowed on or off campus while the shelter in place protocol was enacted, according to district officials.
