Police Lt. Chris De Back said officers responded to an initial call regarding gunshots at the Coliseum but did not find evidence to substantiate the report.
Officers did break up a fight in the parking lot after the graduation ceremony but could not find any shell casings, bullet holes or other evidence confirming a gun was fired, De Back said.
"It's possible, for instance, that someone may have fired shots into the air or something, but as far as we know, it was just a fight," he said.
No arrests were made.
