UPDATE: Washakie County Sheriff Austin Brookwell has released the following statement on a gunshot heard in the area of a Worland Elementary School on Friday morning:

Update to the shots heard by West Side School today:
An individual that has property out in the county along South Flat Road (Highway 432) had gone out this morning around 7:15am and shot a pigeon that was on his property.
The same individual went out again at 12:00pm to shoot some more pigeons which are causing issues on his property.
I was contacted by this person and I can assure everyone this individual is not putting anyone in danger, is shooting in a safe direction, and is only shooting on his property. The sound from their shots are echoing off of their metal buildings making it sound as if it is closer to the school than it truly is.
There is no danger to the public or West Side School.

A Worland Elementary school was secured on Friday morning after a school official heard what they believed to be a gunshot on Friday morning.

That's according to a post on the Washakie County Sheriff's Office/Worland Police Department Facebook page. According to the post, the school official heard the alleged gunshot near Westside Elementary School at 7:26 a.m.

Students and staff were secured inside the school, and law enforcement personnel from the sheriff's office and police department rushed to the scene, with the first officer getting there at 7:27 a.m. But police officers and sheriff's deputies were unable to identify any source for the sound after canvassing the area.

The post goes on to say:

Law enforcement will continue to provide additional security in the area and at all of the schools. Please contact the Worland Police Department at (307)347-4253 or 911 if emergent if you hear or see and suspicious activity.
