UPDATE (December 10  4:09 p.m.):

The rumor about a person with a gun in Milford Mill Academy this morning has been determined to be a hoax.

This incident started with a rumor that had been circulating since early this morning that someone with a gun was going to shoot up the school. Just before 7:30 a.m., a 15-year-old ninth grade student that has disabilities entered the front entrance of the school and stood in the hallway for approximately 10 minutes. During this time, someone took a picture of the student. This picture then circulated via social media with the rumor that the student was the one who made the threat to shoot up the school. Another student received that information and forwarded it to a parent who called the school.

Police were able to identify the student in the picture and are interviewing him. Investigators believe that the student poses no threat to the school and the incident appears to be a rumor that got out of control.

Captain John McGann, commander of the Pikesville Precinct responded to the school to oversee the police response and investigation. He stated, “We take the safety of the students and staff at our schools very seriously. We will thoroughly investigate any possible threat.”

Update (December 10, 12:55 p.m.): Milford Mill Academy has been downgraded from a lockdown to an alert status. Definitions of alert status and lockdown are available online.

Original post:

At 11:09 a.m. this morning, Baltimore County Police received information that there was a gun inside of Milford Mill Academy, 3800 Washington Avenue 21244.

As a precaution, the school was placed on lockdown while police investigated the report.

The initial investigation has indicated that a parent reported that her child had received information about a threat against the school. So far, officers have not found a gun in the school and are working to identify the origin of the rumor about the threat.

Milford Mill Academy remains on lockdown.

The Pikesville Precinct commander is advising the parents to go to the Giant parking lot at 3602 Milford Mill Road where police will provide them with further information.

The Baltimore County Fire Department this fall will conduct two sessions of its five-week emergency preparedness program for citizens.

"Neighbors Helping Neighbors" is a multi-section, all-hazards program that includes interactive lectures and practical instruction. The program is designed to help citizens learn how to help their families and communities get through the first 72 hours following disasters such as tropical storms, blizzards and extended water and power outages.

Experts from local public safety agencies will conduct the training. Topics include natural and technological disasters, fire safety, crime prevention, CPR and first aid, and community preparedness.

Participants are expected to attend a two-hour session once a week for five consecutive weeks. All classes are held on Tuesday evenings, 7 to 9 p.m.

One session begins September 9 at the Providence VFC in Towson. The second session begins October 14 at the Pikesville VFC.

Please register online.
