LONG BEACH (CNS) - Police swarmed a Long Beach high school today in response to a report of shots being fired on the campus, but the noise turned out to be ``pyrotechnics.''

Long Beach police said officers went to Wilson High School in the 4400 block of East 10th Street Monday morning due to the report.

Shortly after midday, however, police issued a statement saying ``officers determined the call was unfounded and that the noises heard were the result of pyrotechnics.'' The source of the pyrotechnics was not revealed.

Police assured the community there was no active threat at the campus.
