HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - Huntsville Police say they were called to Brittany Point apartments Tuesday morning for an apparent domestic incident. The apartment complex is located on Willowbrook Drive, just off Bailey Cove Road.

Officers say a woman called to report she was in fear of a man being there. Police responded, but the man wasn't there.  They went inside to check to confirm this, and he wasn't.  They don't have any charges on the man.

The apartments are just next to Grissom High School, and this happened between 7:45 and 8 a.m. as students were arriving on campus. WHNT News 19 received several calls to our newsroom about this, and several social media posts too.

Several officers parked on school property while this incident was active. Witnesses say the school pulled students into the building quickly while there was an active scene, for safety reasons.
