The 14-year-old Scott High School student who took a realistic-looking pellet gun to school on Monday was ordered to remain in juvenile lock up.

Louis Stroude is charged with making terroristic threats and illegal conveyance of a dangerous weapon onto school property. Lucas County juvenile court Magistrate Laura Restivo ordered the teen to remain in the juvenile detention center pending his next hearing.

His next court date is scheduled for Dec. 18.

The Stroude youth's attorney, Megan Mattimoe, from the public defender's office, entered a denial plea on the boy's behalf. She also asked that the boy be placed on house arrest instead of remaining in lock up.

The teen is accused of taking a pellet gun to Scott High School on Monday and showing part of it to a teacher and school officer. Toledo police were called in and, after more than an hour-long standoff, the boy was taken into custody.

Two classrooms had to be evacuated during the standoff; all Scott students were released early.

School district officials said there would be additional security and counselors at the school today.
