Woonsocket High School Placed On Lockdown
Woonsocket High School was put on lockdown Thursday afternoon after police were told a male student brought a loaded weapon to school.
Police identified the 17-year old student and arrested him while both the high school and vocational school next door were placed on lockdown. Investigators searched the student's car and found a loaded air-soft pistol in the trunk.
The student is now being charged with having a gun at school. He's being held at the Rhode Island Training School. He will appear in court Friday morning.
