DETROIT (AP) - Reports of shots fired near a Detroit school have sent dozens of students fleeing from classes just two days after seven teenagers were shot near the school.

Police responding to multiple 911 calls have not confirmed that shots were actually fired Thursday morning near the Cody Ninth Grade Academy on the city's west side.

Classes continued as dozens of students streamed from the school. Only students who were accompanied by parents were allowed to leave.

Seven teens including five students at the academy were shot Tuesday at a nearby bus stop after summer classes let out. Three remain hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police are searching for two gunmen and a getaway driver.
