Juveniles charged after Monday gun threat at Lakota school
WEST CHESTER, Ohio (WXIX) - Two juveniles have been charged in connection with a gun threat at Lakota West Freshman Building that prompted lockdowns on Monday.
A 911 text indicating a student brought a gun to school was transferred from the Butler County 911 Center to West Chester Communications, according to West Chester Police.
Lakota schools were notified and issued an internal lockdown at the freshman building and Creekside ECW and Lakota Central High School, given the proximity of the three, police explained Tuesday.
The student accused of bringing the gun was identified, isolated from other students and questioned by officers, West Chester police said.
Police records show one student brought a magazine and ammo into the school and put it in his locker. Another student then took the magazine and ammo out of the locker and offered to show a “gun” to someone in the school bathroom, according to the police report.
Police said Tuesday that two juveniles have been charged with felony inducing panic. They were taken to the Juvenile Detention Center.
The investigation is ongoing.
