Schools in Ridgefield, Conn. were locked down for about two hours Monday morning after a report of a possibly suspicious person in the Branchville train station area, authorities said.

Police gave the all-clear by 11:15 a.m., and “no dangerous activity was discovered,” the school district said on its website.

Officials are on alert after Friday’s violent rampage in which 20 children and six faculty were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary.

A police presence would remain at the Ridgefield schools, as planned, the district said.
