DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say an active shooter scare that prompted a lockdown at a Florida high school turned out to be firecrackers. Daytona Beach police say officers responded to Mainland High School following numerous emergency calls shortly after noon Thursday. Investigators quickly determined that there was no active shooter. Officers clearing one of the campus buildings discovered firecrackers that had been set off inside a stairwell. Detectives used security video to determine that three juvenile students set off the firecrackers. Police said each of them face a misdemeanor charge of disruption of a school function and a felony charge of bringing an explosive device onto school property.
