Student, 14, Taken Into Custody After Baltimore Co. School Put On Lockdown

Student, 14, Taken Into Custody After Baltimore Co. School Put On Lockdown

A school resource officer called authorities around noon after a student showed another student a weapon that was in his backpack, police said.

Loch Raven High School was placed on lockdown after there were reports of a gun on campus.

The SRO approached the student after receiving information about the possible gun, and the student then fled into another part of the school.

District spokeswoman Diana Spencer confirmed the school is on lockdown and that police are on the scene.

Police were later able to take the student into custody, and they were able to recover a pellet gun.

The scare came one day after a 19-year-old student in Florida went on a shooting rampage in his former high school, killing at least 17 people.

The suspect, 14, is in custody pending charges. Roads in the area of the school were blocked. There are no reported injuries. The situation was resolved in about 45 minutes and the lockdown was lifted a short time later, police say. Police have set up a staging area for parents at 1125 Cromwell Bridge Road, outside The Big Screen Store.
