UPPER DUBLIN, Pa. (AP) -- Police say a suburban Philadelphia high school was briefly locked down after school security mistook a student’s umbrella for a gun.
Authorities say Upper Dublin High School was locked down Monday morning after four male students were spotted on a school security video.
School officials identified one of the students and police quickly located all four students, who were being interviewed. Police say they were working on a project illustrating the immune system protecting the body.
Monday marks the first full day of classes for most students since 20 children were killed in a shooting at Connecticut elementary school.
An Upper Dublin student said he and others awaited the all-clear in a locker room. The sophomore says it makes sense to be alert given Friday’s shooting in Newtown, Conn.
