Fake weapon causes a scene at Peru middle school

Posted by wlpo on April 6, 2016

There were some anxious moments at Peru Parkside Middle School.

A young boy who is a student at the school was taken into police custody Tuesday after allegedly bringing a lookalike weapon to school. According to a message sent to parents, no students were ever in danger or threatened.

Peru Elementary Superintendent Mark Cross called the situation isolated and says it was dealt with immediately. He says any and all appropriate discipline will be used according to district policy.
