WARREN, Mich. – A 15-year-old student is in custody after making a threat toward another student at Lincoln High School in Warren, officials said.
Officers were called to the school at 1:56 p.m. Wednesday (Jan. 12).
Police said a 10th grader made implications about a gun while threatening another student. Two others said they saw a gun that could have been a 9 mm, based on the description, Warren officials said.
An empty magazine was found, according to Warren police Commissioner Bill Dwyer.
The 15-year-old student was taken into custody by the Warren resource officer and responding units within three minutes, authorities said.
Dwyer said the school was briefly locked down until officials confirmed there was no further threat. Students were released for the day immediately following the incident, according to police.
“I am proud that the school officials and the police department were able to work together to quickly and safely resolve this dangerous situation,” Dwyer said. “Our training and close co-operation paid off in keeping these students safe. I am grateful for the quick reaction of the school resource officer and responding uniformed personnel.”
No weapon has been found, but police are continuing to investigate, they said.
