WARREN, Mich – A Lincoln High School student told administrators that a 15-year-old boy flashed a gun at her in class and threatened to pistol-whip her.
At least two high school students said they had seen what they described as a pistol. The incident put Lincoln High School into a brief lockdown on Wednesday.
“I got a call from my daughter, and she said it was a boy in her class that pulled a gun on her,” Tenille Davis said.

Warren police were on the scene in under three minutes, and the 15-year-old boy accused of making the threat was arrested. A search of the school found no gun, but authorities did find an empty magazine.
The Macomb County Prosecutor’s Office says it will make a charging decision Thursday morning.
“I’m so glad the young lady came forward right away, and I want parents and community members to know the school reacted wonderfully, and we do have procedures in place,” said Van Dyke Public Schools Superintendent Piper Bognar.
Parents received a robocall Wednesday evening to inform them of what happened earlier in the day, along with an announcement that the high school would go virtual for the next two days.
