WILKINSBURG (KDKA/AP) – Emergency officials were called to Wilkinsburg High School after a student allegedly poured gasoline on a security guard.
According to emergency dispatchers, the incident happened around 9:30 a.m.
A spokesman for the school district says a 16-year-old female student attacked the security guard by pouring gasoline hidden inside a soda bottle.
“Parents have been notified via alert now which is our mass response system. We’re going to keep the apprised as much as we can,” Wilkinsburg School District Acting Superintendent Joseph Petrella said.
Wilkinsburg School District spokesman Pete Camarda says the school was evacuated Monday morning. He says officials are contacting parents of students in the seventh- through 12th- grade school in Pittsburgh’s eastern suburbs so they can be picked up.
The student was involved in a milk-throwing incident with the security guard on Friday. She was to be disciplined Monday morning.
Instead, she allegedly showed up with a 2-liter soda bottle filled with gasoline. When the guard told her she couldn’t bring it into school, the girl allegedly poured it on the guard. more here
