ELIDA (AP) — Police in Elida took a middle school student into custody after the boy allegedly brought knives to school and had a notebook containing threatening comments.
Elida Schools Superintendent Don Diglia says no one was hurt and the boy was suspended and is facing expulsion.
Diglia says the 13-year-old boy walked into the middle school principal’s office shortly before noon Wednesday asking about school lockdown procedures.
Diglia says that after questioning, the boy produced a small knife and a box cutter and that authorities then found two more knives and a notebook with threatening comments in the boy’s book bag in his locker.
According to authorities, the seventh-grader is being held in juvenile detention.
