Disruption of School Activities / Millersville
On October 18, 2021, at approximately 1:50 p.m. a student at Old Mill High School notified the administration and the SRO (School Resource Officer) that they may have seen a student armed with a gun a few hours prior. Officers and administration immediately began an investigation and identified the person of interest. A search of the school was initiated when the student of interest was not in class. That student was located in a common area of the school, and a BB gun was located a short distance away from him. The student was charged on a juvenile citation. This incident was a great example of "see something, say something." We encourage everyone to report any suspicious activity they witness.
