BLAUVELT, N.Y. (AP) - Police say a 14-year-old boy brandished a pellet gun at a suburban New York middle school, then waved it at passing cars outside until a retired police officer wrestled it away.
Orangetown police Chief Kevin Nulty says the boy was taken into custody and no one was injured. He says the boy pulled the gun in South Orangetown Middle School in Blauvelt on Tuesday morning, then ran outside and pointed it at motorists before he was disarmed.
The school went into lockdown during the gun scare. The same school had a lockdown last year when an irate parent barged in and held the district superintendent at gunpoint. Blauvelt is a bedroom community and hamlet of Orangetown about 20 miles north of New York City.
