Talk of guns in Middletown High School resulted in one student being charged and police investigating incidents Friday that were unfounded.
Shortly after 9 a.m., School Resource Officer Luke Agee was approached by a school administrator who said a student ran out of class stating he had a gun and was heading toward the Manchester building.
About an hour later, Agee was told by an administrator three people were arguing with another student and made reference to a weapon, according to the police report.
Lt. David Birk said officers determined both incidents were a matter of talk and there was no gun at the school.
“We searched everything,” Birk said.
The 15-year-old boy who allegedly ran from the classroom after mentioning a gun said it was a joke, according to police. But the boy was charged with misdemeanor inducing panic.
