Goffstown school locked down during scare at nearby library

GOFFSTOWN -- A heavy police presence at the library on Friday afternoon sent the nearby elementary school into "a modified shelter in place."

Police were called to Goffstown Public Library at approximately 2 p.m. on Friday after someone who appeared to be a vagrant walked into the library, prompting concern among library employees. Employees called police and then quickly evacuated the library building.

When police responded, the individual was questioned but no charges were brought and no arrest was made, according to Police Chief Patrick Sullivan.

The chief said nearby Maple Avenue Elementary School went into "modified shelter in place," which means students and teachers stay in their classrooms until they get the all-clear, which they got about a half-hour later.

"It was just some homeless guy. He was just looking for some clothes, that's all," said Sullivan.
