Authorities found a gun at the home of a high school sophomore after a threat on social media placed the school on lockdown Monday. Police Chief Michael Conner said a threat was made on social media by the 15-year-old and seen by another student. Conner said a gun was found at the student's home.
According to an email sent from Dumont Public Schools to parents, the student was taken into custody around 1:15 p.m. The school building was then deemed safe and students returned to the school. The Bergen County Prosecutor's Office is investigating the incident.
Authorities in tactical gear were at the high school on New Milford Avenue, while parents watched from across the street as the school was placed on lockdown.
