Officials have determined the phone call from an alleged shooter at Volunteer High School last week came from outside the state.
The school went into lockdown and evacuated Tuesday after a credible 911 call about an active shooter in the building.
Tuesday marked eight weeks since 5-year-old Summer Wells was reported missing from her Hawkins County home.
“There are no signs in the school of an active shooter, no signs that a weapon had been fired and no injuries to any student or faculty.” — Hawkins County Sheriff Ronnie Lawson
During a press conference that began at 11:15 a.m., an emergency responder said two people were transported from the school for medical treatment not related to gunshots.
The caller stated that Christina Lynn Adams was leaving the residence armed with a handgun and threatening suicide.
Monday morning the Times News spoke to Summer's father, Donald Wells, who wouldn't discuss specifics about why the boys were removed except to say it's not safe at his home at this time.
Hawkins County has six active “cold cases” involving missing persons and/or mysterious deaths, but Sheriff Ronnie Lawson said Friday the Summer Wells case isn't close to being cold.
