TOLEDO, Ohio — A 14-year-old student flashed a pellet gun inside an Ohio high school, setting off a lockdown and short standoff Monday in a hallway before he was taken into custody, police and a witness said. No one was hurt.
The student, whose name wasn’t released, was kicked out of class and sent to a room for students serving in-school suspensions, where he told a school police officer that he had a gun and pulled it partly out his book bag, said Kayla Williams, a student inside the room.
The pellet gun looked like a real handgun, said Lieutenant Mark King, a police spokesman. The teen was taken into custody after he was isolated in a hallway and officers fired a bean bag round. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
