Two Stratford students charged in gun incident

Some scary moments for students at Wooster Middle School in Stratford as reports of a gun spread through the school Tuesday.

Police say the middle school was in lockdown for more than a half hour while they investigated. According to police, a 13-year-old and 16-year-old were shooting off cap guns in a school stairwell. No one was hurt in the incident and classes resumed.

The two students were taken into custody and charged with breach of peace and reckless endangerment. Schools Superintendent Irene Cornish says the students will also face disciplinary action from the school.
