CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, OH (WOIO) -

On Wednesday, a Cleveland Heights school and library were placed on lockdown after police received a call that a teenager had been shot on Noble Road.

Cleveland Heights police rushed to the scene and found a 17-year-old male who had been shot in the arm and foot, according to police chief Annette Mecklenburg.

The teen was taken to a hospital, and police canvassed the area but were unable to find the shooter.

"While officers were searching the area, Noble Road Elementary School and the Noble Road Library were placed on lockdown to ensure the safety of students and staff.  The lockdown has since been lifted," said Mecklenburg in a prepared statement. 

The investigation is ongoing and police believe the shooting broke out during a disturbance involving several teens in the neighborhood.
