Ohio teen arrested after standoff faces felonies

Published:

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) -- A 14-year-old Ohio student who triggered a lockdown and police standoff after he allegedly flashed a pellet gun at school has been charged as a juvenile with two felonies.

WTOL-TV (http://bit.ly/1bfHRDx ) reports that the student was arraigned Tuesday in Toledo on charges of making terroristic threats and illegal conveyance.

Lucas County Juvenile Prosecutor Lori Olender says the student won't be charged as an adult because he has no criminal record. Details of his legal representation weren't available.

Scott High School was on lockdown for more than an hour Monday after police say the student pulled a pellet gun that looked like a real firearm.

A student who was in the room said the boy was first kicked out of class and sent to a room for students serving in-school suspensions.
