Continue reading below

A 13-year-old boy who was spotted behind a Hingham elementary school with a pellet gun last week, prompting a brief lockdown, is facing a number of charges, authorities said. The teen will be charged with assault with a dangerous weapon, carrying a dangerous weapon on school grounds, being a minor in possession of a BB gun, and disorderly conduct, Sergeant Steven Dearth told the Patriot Ledger. Foster Elementary School went into lockdown for about 20 minutes Thursday after school officials received a report of someone in the woods behind the school, possibly carrying a gun and wearing a ski mask. Although school was over for the day, there were some students and staff involved in after-school activities in the building.
