School lockdown after shots fired
May 13, 2010
Atascadero Police have identified the person responsible for shooting a gun near an elementary school two mornings in a row as an 11-year-old neighbor of Santa Rosa Academic Academy.[KEYT]
Shortly after 8 a.m., shots rang out and the school went into lockdown while officers started an investigation.
Police performing a door-to-door investigation of the neighborhood were given information that led them to get a search warrant for the boy’s home.
The boy confessed to firing the gun. Because the boy is a minor police are not releasing his name.
Police seized the gun and are determining whether or not to press charges against the boy’s parents.
