Teen accused of bringing gun onto campus in Hastings-on-Hudson.
Police have taken a teenager into custody for allegedly bringing a gun onto the campus of a school for troubled youths in Hastings-on-Hudson.
Investigators say they received a call just before 1:00 a.m. today from the Graham-Windham School on South Broadway that a 16-year-old boy was walking around the campus of the residential school with a gun, and that there were possible shots fired.
Officials immediately put the school into lockdown mode for several hours overnight.
A search in the air and on the ground ensued by officers from Hastings, Yonkers, Greenburgh and county police departments.
Investigators say the student was found inside the Edgewood Cottage on campus, but there was no weapon there. Police continued to search the property, and say they found what looks to be a replica of an antique gun near the elementary school.
They are still testing to see if the weapon is real or just a fake. Detectives have questioned the boy, and say so far, no charges have been filed but they are still working on their investigation.
Officials at the Graham-Windham school have released a statement saying they are conducting their own campus probe and are cooperating with police.
