Football game delayed after microphone testing was mistaken for gunshots

BLOOMINGTON – Bloomington Police Department officers responded to Bloomington High School North Friday after a report of possible gunshots before the Bloomington North and Bedford North Lawrence High School football game.

Officers responded after people reported they thought they heard gunshots.

Police found no threat to the public. They believe someone was tapping on a microphone or public address system and mistook that pop for gunfire.

The game kicked off at 7:40 p.m. after an initial delay was caused by lightning and then the delay was extended by the police investigation.
