Lockland Student with Big Watch Mistaken for Gunman
LOCKLAND, Ohio (WKRC) -- Police tell Local 12 that Tuesday's scare about a man with a gun in school was not what people thought at the time.
A girl scout leader reported seeing what looked exactly like a man with a gun, probably a student. School was over, but there were a few people inside, including the girl scout troop which was locked in a closet while police searched the building.
Lockland Police Lieutenant Terry Wilkerson told us surveillance video of the incident has been reviewed and the person in question did not have a gun.
Wilkerson says a student had a large silver watch. He says from 100 feet away, where the scout leader was, it may have looked like a gun, particularly with the way the student was moving.
However, Wilkerson says it was not a weapon and the student was not doing anything wrong.
