Chico Junior High School was on a “shelter in-place” lock down late this morning after a 7th grade student punched several windows.
According to Dave Scott, Assistant Superintendent for Educational Services for the Chico Unified School District, a seventh grade student became upset in a classroom and reportedly punched one of the windows. The upset student then left the classroom and reportedly punched three more windows in the hallway, prompting school officials to order the lock down just after 11:30 a.m. today.
Chico Police officers quickly arrived at the scene and calmed the student down within minutes of the initial call. The student was then taken to the hospital to be treated for minor injuries.
The lockdown lasted for approximately 20 minutes and classes resumed as scheduled afterwards.
