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.

At 2:59 p.m. Saturday afternoon, Baltimore County Police and Fire personnel responded to the 3600 block of Coronado Road for a report of a car that "flipped over on someone". When officers arrived on the scene, they found a man in his 50’s pinned under a Ford Explorer in the driveway of a home. It appeared that he had the vehicle jacked up so that he could work on it and the jack failed causing the vehicle to fall on him.

The man was extricated from under the vehicle by members of the Baltimore County Fire Department and then transported to North West Hospital where he was declared deceased. He has been identified as 51-year-old Milton Carl Thomas who lived at the home where the incident occurred.

The man’s body has been transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for an autopsy.
