"Pender County Schools is thankful everyone is safe and thanks local emergency services for its immediate response", the school tweeted.

Police were seen on the roof of the school shortly after the first reports emerged.

Deputies did find an HVAC unit that was malfunctioning and making sounds similar to gunshots.

According to KFox14 reporter Kelly Anne Beile, a call came in at 6:30 a.m. ET Friday morning of a report of an active shooter inside Topsail High School in Hampstead, North Carolina, located about 20 miles north of Wilmington, North Carolina.

"There's no active shooter", the Fayetteville Observer quoted Pender County, North Carolina, emergency management director Tom Collins as saying.

All Pender County schools in the eastern part of the county are on lockdown.

However, after police investigated the scene, they determined there was no active shooter and that the noises heard inside the school were from a water heater that was loudly malfunctioning.

All of the schools in the district have been placed in lock down.

It prompted evacuations and lockdowns at Topsail High School in the unincorporated town of Hampstead.

Capt. James Rowell, of the Pender County Sheriff's Office, said there were no injuries reported so far, according to local media WWAY-TV in Wilmington.

Students that were already on buses were transported to the Lowes Foods across from the school.
