A 15-year-old boy was arrested yesterday for the May 25 incident that caused a lockdown at Riverside Elementary School, Chicago and Chase streets, police said.
The boy, who police believe was carrying a handgun on the school's grounds, was charged with delinquency in connection with conveyance or possession of dangerous ordnance in school safety zone. He was being held in the Lucas County Juvenile Justice Center.
Police recovered the pellet gun the boy was carrying.
More than 400 parents swarmed the North Toledo elementary school demanding to take home their children after a young man with a gun was seen briefly by students and staff members.
By the time police arrived, the suspect was gone. No one was harmed.
