Student brought pellet gun to Milwaukie HS, district says

MILWAUKIE, Ore. – Police said a Milwaukie High School student brought a soft pellet gun to school on Thursday.

No one was hurt. There was never any threat to the school, according to Milwaukie Police Officer Ulli Neitch.

It’s unclear if the gun was loaded. North Clackamas School District spokesman Joe Krum said the school was not locked down.

Police received an anonymous tip about the pellet gun, Neitch said. The student was not taken into custody. Police wrote a report and filed it with Clackamas County juvenile authorities. No citations were issued because the student is a minor, police said.

Krum did not provide any details about potential discipline for the student. He said he doubted the student went back to class on Thursday.

KATU received a news tip from a concerned parent wondering why parents were not notified about the pellet gun. Krum said he didn’t know if parents were informed.
