UPDATE: Hearing for Boy Arrested in New Prague School Lockdown

New Prague School, Facebook

NEW PRAGUE  (AP) – A hearing will be held this week for the 12-year-old Minnesota boy suspected of making a prank 911 call that prompted a school lockdown.

Attorney Marsh Halberg has been retained to represent the boy. Halberg says the boy remains in custody, and a juvenile detention hearing will be scheduled for Thursday or Friday.

The New Prague middle school, high school and Central Education Campus buildings were locked down Wednesday morning after a 911 caller said there was a shooter with an AK-47 and a couple of victims.

Authorities determined no one was hurt and arrested the boy. Classes were canceled for the rest of the day.

Halberg says the boy’s parents want other parents to know no gun was involved and that it’s safe for students to return to school.
