MANCHESTER - A trial for a man who prompted a high school lockdown Sept. 25 starts Thursday.
Damian Johnson is accused of bringing an airsoft gun into the school, along with a knife, and hiding them in a friend's backpack to avoid being arrested.
Police said his former teacher said he simply went to the school to ask her for a letter of recommendation to attend college.
Johnson is being tried on several misdemeanor charges, including criminal trespassing and creating a disturbance in a school.
