Concord police say high school student lied about man pointing gun at her
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Police in Concord, N.H., say a high school student lied when she said an 18-year-old man pointed a gun at her at school, causing authorities to evacuate the building and arrest the man. They later dropped the charges.
More than 40 police officers responded to Concord High School on Tuesday night after receiving a report of a student threatening another student with a weapon. There were night classes and student projects going on at the school.
The Central New Hampshire Special Operations Unit put the school in lock-down and police arrested the man.
During subsequent interviews, detectives determined the girl lied and that the incident didn’t happen. They said she faces possible charges of filing a false police report and creating a public alarm.
