NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - Police in New Haven are searching for a high school student who allegedly brought a handgun to school after a dispute.
The incident happened around 1 p.m. Wednesday when police say there was an argument or fight among students at the New Light High School, a public alternative high school.
Police say the student in question left the school after the fight broke up and threatened to return. A school security guard later reported to school officials and police that the student had in fact returned and was apparently armed with a handgun.
Police say the student made it onto school grounds, but not inside the building. Officers were notified at around 2 p.m. and maintained a presence at the school until dismissal was completed.
