At 9:30 this morning, a fourteen year old student at Scott High School in Toledo, Ohio pulled out a gun this morning after students returned from the Thanksgiving holiday.
The unnamed student isolated himself inside a portion of an empty hallway. Two classrooms were evacuated, and the rest of the school was locked down.
Parents were notified of the incident, but asked not to come to the school.
The boy’s parents were on the scene, along with SWAT officers. Toledo police tweeted that “Suspect from Scott High School now in custody,” but officers remain on the scene and the school remains locked down. Witnesses saw police removing a boy from the school.
Police confirmed at 10:55 a.m. that the student was in possession of a pellet gun. No answer was given concerning how the student was able to get past the metal detectors in the school. He was shot once with a beanbag in the foot. The boy was described as “agitated.”
Students were dismissed at 11:30 a.m, and school will resume normally tomorrow.
The teenager will face immediate expulsion.
