DC youth had "destructive device" at school
A 13-year-old District middle school student was arrested Tuesday for allegedly bringing "a destructive device" to school, officials said. The specific nature of the device was not immediately disclosed.
Fred Lewis, a D.C. schools spokesman, said the student attends Jefferson Middle School in the 800 block of 7th Street NW. Lewis did not say whether the student, who was arrested by D.C. police, is a boy or a girl.
A police spokeswoman could not immediately provide any information about the incident.
Lewis said in a release that school security officers "found the device in a student's book bag when the student arrived at school. The dangerous device was confiscated by school leadership and MPD was called to the school."
The student "will not be allowed to return to the school pending the expulsion proceedings," Lewis said.
There were no injuries.
