Massachusetts

BROCKTON, Mass (WPRI) — A Brockton High School student is being criminally charged after school administrators were alerted to a Snapchat video clip that lead to a stay in place order.

The concerning video depicted a student with a magazine clip in their waistband. The student was pulled from the class and he admitted to having taken the photo in September and posted it on Friday.

Family members are asked not to call the school when the order was in effect. At 10:00 a.m the order was lifted.

The Brockton Schools Superintendent assured parents that there was never an active threat on school grounds, and classes continued as regularly scheduled.
