The commotion Monday afternoon at the old Carnegie Vanguard High School, which was closed in 2009, resulted in several calls from concerned residents to KTRK-TV, Houston, about military helicopters, armed soldiers and sounds of gunfire, KTRK-TV reported.
"When you see this, you think the worst. When you hear this, you think the worst," resident Frances Jerrals said.
The Army said the incident was a multi-agency training exercise at the shuttered high school. No details about the nature of the training were released.
