A student accused of bringing a broken BB gun to Hinsdale South High School in west suburban Darien last week will be charged as a juvenile with disorderly conduct.
Wednesday morning, a concerned student came forward to report that another student had brought a weapon to school, according to a statement from Hinsdale Township High School District 86.
The administration contacted the school resource officer, who located the student within moments.
A broken BB gun was found among the student’s belongings and the situation was resolved “without incident,” according to the statement.
Darien police took the student into custody, and a misdemeanor juvenile charge of disorderly conduct was expected to be finalized Monday, according to police, who declined to release the boy’s name and age because he is a minor.
“From the student who came forward to the administrative team who responded quickly and decisively, each remained calm and acted swiftly to ensure the safety of our school,” the district statement read.
