Pinkerton Academy locked down after 2 starter guns found in school


DERRY - School officials placed Pinkerton Academy in stay-in-place lockdown Thursday after learning a student had two guns on him.

The guns were starter pistols like the kind used at the beginning of a track meet.

The school resource officer and Derry police took the student off campus around 12:30 p.m. and then brought him to the Derry Police Station.

Headmaster Griffin Morse alerted parents, students, faculty and staff through email and the school's automated telephone communications system.

Classes continued and after-school activities also were scheduled to still be held.
