The city’s First District Elementary School was locked down while a search was made of businesses and residences on the 700-block of North Main Street. Meadville Medical Center facilities on Liberty and Grove Streets were also locked down. Police officials turned up nothing suspicious.
The incident was reported around 2:00 PM Wednesday. Police say they returned to normal duties before 2:30 PM.
