A Minnesota State Patrol officer walks away from the New Prague Middle School in New Prague, Minn., with his assault rifle, Wednesday morning, March 20, 2013 after authorities in New Prague responded to a 911 call concerning an "active shooter" at the middle school, but a staff member later said everyone is safe and there is no danger inside the building. The 911 call in which a caller claimed several people had been gunned down at the school was likely a hoax, Scott County Sheriff Kevin Studnicka said said Wednesday.
