Schools in Bradford went into lockdown Wednesday during a death investigation at a pizza restaurant in town.
Police responded to the Bradford House of Pizza on Main Street at about 11:30 a.m. Authorities found the owner, Christian Cameron, 35, critically injured from a gunshot wound to the head. He was rushed to the hospital where he died.
The elementary school, Oxbow High School and the Riverbend Career and Tech Center were locked down for 25 minutes until police notified the schools there was no threat to students.
Police do not suspect foul play.
"I am not going to confirm what the nature of that incident was, but can assure you that there is no public danger whatsoever. Because, there was a lot of speculation that there was in the infancy stages of this incident when we first arrived, but there is absolutely no public danger whatsoever," Bradford Police Chief Jeffrey Stiegler said.
