Starter pistol rounds found at North Hampton School
Police responded to the school just before 10:30 a.m. after receiving a report of ammunition found on the floor in the locker room.
Page was not sure how many rounds were found.
Still, Page said the rounds from a starter pistol could pose dangers.
“It’s gunpowder and a shell. It shouldn’t be in a child’s hands and that’s why the school was so quick to notify us. Why somebody would have starter pistol rounds is interesting to me. That’s very rare,” Page said.
“There’s no connection whatsoever,” he said, adding that different students were involved in the two incidents.
The investigation of the alleged gun threat has since been suspended and no juvenile court petitions will be issued at this point, Page said.
