GUNTERSVILLE, Ala. (AP) -- Authorities say a report of gunshots and the search for a suspect has led to classes being delayed for students in Guntersville.

Administers delayed Wednesday morning's school start in Guntersville City Schools for two hours.

Police believe that someone knocked on the door of an apartment on Richardson Street around 2:30 a.m. Authorities say the homeowner chased the man off and called police. The suspect ran into a wooded area and police heard two shots.

Helicopters were brought out to look for the suspect when another shot was heard.

The suspect was not found, and no injuries were reported.

Superintendent Dale Edwards said the start of classes would be delayed for two hours at the recommendation of law enforcement.
