NEW YORK (Reuters) - A New Jersey elementary school was evacuated on Tuesday after reports of an armed intruder on the grounds, law enforcement officials said.

Police and SWAT teams converged on Village Elementary School in Holmdel Township, about 40 miles (64 km) south of New York City, just after noon local time and searched for a gunman, said Charles Webster, a spokesman with the Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office.

No shots were reported fired and no one was injured, Webster said.
