Shelter in place lifted at Walter Fitzgerald Campus following search for handgun
The shelter in place at Walter Fitzgerald Campus has been lifted following reports of a handgun possibly being in the school, officials say.
They say that a student told school officials they were the victim of an altercation on Wednesday, which took place on the grounds during school hours. The student said that they thought the other student involved may have been in possession of a handgun at the time.
The school was searched for weapons Thursday, but police say nothing was found. They also say that they couldn't verify if the other student had a gun at the time of the incident.
Police issued a juvenile summons to a 17-year-old for second-degree breach of peace.
