YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Ursuline High School was locked down after a teenager who posed as a student was found in the school Friday.
That teenager, Andru Davis, 18, is charged with criminal trespass and inducing panic.
According to the Youngstown Police Department, Davis walked into the school, went into a restroom and put on a jersey resembling an Ursuline shirt. This was done to pull a prank on an Ursuline student.
Police said school officials recognized him as someone who wasn’t a student, so the school was locked down as a precaution.
An email went out to students and staff, informing them that Youngstown police were called regarding the incident. School officials said he was found within minutes and turned over to police.
“The teenager did not have a weapon and at no time were the Ursuline students, faculty, or staff under any threat. The entirety of the lockdown lasted approximately 10 minutes,” officials said in a statement sent to First News.
The school day will continue as normal.
