BETTENDORF, Iowa (KWQC) - A false alarm was raised Saturday night, claiming someone brought and fired a weapon at the Bettendorf High School Homecoming dance. Parents tell TV6 their kids heard various students banging on lockers, simulating gunshots.

Bettendorf Police Chief Keith Kimball says police officers working the dance immediately discovered it was “unfounded, false, and possibly a hoax.”

He goes on to say there was never a weapon or any shots fired.
