ConVal student could face charges for gun incident
Peterborough Police Chief Scott Guinard said Thursday the incident is a juvenile matter and he would not discuss what specific charges are being filed against the 14-year-old Peterborough resident.
Six police officers responded to the high school Wednesday at 1:15 p.m., Guinard said, and at that point it was unknown whether the gun was loaded or not.
The student was taken to the Peterborough police station as the investigation continued. He was released to his parents later in the evening hours, Guinard said.
“The individual will be held accountable under New Hampshire law,” Guinard said.
“When they were down there they were joined by members of Peterborough police,” Minnihan said.The class was just getting out so as students left, the student was told to stay in the room, he said. “The student had been isolated in the classroom.”
“The student is not in school. There are definite procedures that we would follow,” Minnihan said.
Minnihan said he could not talk about the student, but said the school district is bound by its own procedures as well as the state and federal Safe Schools Act.
In referring to the Safe Schools Act, Minnihan said, “In general terms when an individual brings a gun to school there is an expulsion hearing that takes place and generally there is an expulsion, but every case is different.”
Additionally, parents received a voice message alert to inform them about the incident.
