Police in Salem say that a 17-year-old high school student accused of pointing a handgun at another student during class has been taken into custody.
No one was injured and police did not immediately find a gun.
Lt. Dave Okada said the North Salem High School student was in class Wednesday morning when he was seen “pointing what appeared to be a handgun” at another student.
Officers responded and found the teen several blocks from the school. Okada says the boy is accused of disorderly conduct, menacing and possession of a firearm in a public building.
