COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Authorities responding to a report of a shooter at an Ohio high school say they arrested a student and took a gun, and no one was hurt.
Police say Adan Abdullahi (ah-DAHN’ ab-duh’-LA’-hee) was charged with improperly discharging a firearm in a school safety zone following Friday’s incident.
Authorities say additional charges could be filed later. The 18-year-old Abdullahi didn’t appear in online court records and it was unclear if an attorney had been appointed yet to represent him.
The school is several miles south of downtown Columbus and describes itself as designed to serve “emotionally disturbed” students in grades six to 12.
Police Chief Kim Jacobs says initial information indicated a school employee talked with and helped calm the armed male, later identified as Abdullahi.
