Police: Md. student committed after threat
Tuesday - 12/18/2012, 8:42pm EST
LAUREL, Md. (AP) - Maryland police say a high school student was committed to a hospital's psychiatric ward after classmates reported feeling threatened and his parents said he had access to weapons.
Laurel, Md., police spokesman Pete Piringer said the youth was committed Monday after threatening to harm others and after his classmates complained about his disruptive behavior. Piringer said a teacher reported the complaints to a school security officer, who notified police.
Piringer said Tuesday that the boy's parents told police he had access to weapons and officers found materials that lent credibility to his threats. He would not reveal the name of the high school or the student's age.
Piringer said the teacher and other students acted appropriately.
Quoting Laurel City Police Chief Richard McLaughlin, he said, "See something, say something."
