BUTTE FALLS, Ore. — An incident today, March 14, at Butte Falls Charter School caused the school to go on lockdown. One teenage student is in custody.

School officials called 911 after a 13-year-old student armed with “bricks and various tools” threatened staff members. According to the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office, most of the incident happened outside, after the school had already gone into lockdown.

The student’s parents arrived and were able to calm the teenager down. Deputies arrived shortly after and took him into custody without further incident.

Dispatch received a second call after the initial 911 call, citing second-hand reports of shots being fired. Deputies were able to confirm after responding that no shots were fired.

The student will be lodged in the Jackson County juvenile detention facility on charges of menacing and second-degree disorderly conduct.
