BRENHAM, Texas — A system malfunction led to a false Active Shooter Alert this afternoon at Brenham Junior High School, said police.

Around 2:20 p.m. this afternoon, the Brenham Police Department stated they were "not sure" what triggered the alarm but were actively looking into it.

Then at 2:35 p.m., the Brenham Independent School District confirmed that a "malfunction in the system" resulted in the false alarm.

The junior high has since reopened and students and staff have resumed normal schedules.
