Xenia Daily Gazette



BEAVERCREEK — A 15-year-old Beavercreek student is facing legal and school discipline after allegedly firing a cap gun during lunch at Ferguson Hall May 16.

According to WDTN, the boy — who is not being named — allegedly fired the gun in the freshmen-only building three times. He was taken to the Greene County Juvenile Detention Center and will be charged with attempted inducing panic, WDTN reported.

Beavercreek City Schools — which do not allow toy weapons on school grounds — “will take every stop possible to ensure that discipline is administered to the greatest extent possible” when situations like this occur, according to district spokesperson Ryan Gilding.

Specific discipline measures will not be disclosed, Gilding added.

There were no injuries or evacuations according to WDTN.
