Two Orange County schools are back to normal Monday afternoon after being put on lockdown earlier in the day.
Staff at Lightfoot Elementary called the Orange County Sheriff's Office around 9:30 a.m. to report hearing gunshots near the school. Lightfoot and Unionville Elementary were placed under a "code red" in which students weren't allowed to leave the classroom.
Students at other Orange County schools were on modified lockdown, meaning they were allowed to roam the halls but couldn't go outside.
Deputies determined the shots came from some people hunting squirrels on a neighboring property.
The lockdowns were lifted shortly before 10 a.m.
