Student causes lockdown at Plymouth high school

A student at Armstrong High School in Plymouth, Minn., brought a handgun to school on Monday, reports the Star Tribune.

The unnamed 17-year-old student tried to escape authorities, sending the school into lockdown. WCCO reports that the boy was being escorted to an office when he fled.

A school staff member told the Star Tribune that they saw the boy in a hallway with a bulge under his clothing. Principal David Dahl, in a note sent home to parents and obtained by WCCO, reports that the student was not supposed to be in the hallway at that particular time.

The student was later taken down by a K-9 officer off campus. The handgun was not found until the boy was apprehended.

The boy was then sent to North Memorial Medical center, but did not have any serious injuries. (WCCO)

The student faces suspension and possible expulsion.
