  • NEW PRAGUE, Minn. (AP) — A Minnesota school district locked down several buildings Wednesday after a 911 call that authorities later said was a prank, and a 12-year-old boy suspected of making the call was arrested.

    The 8 a.m. emergency call prompted a lockdown at the middle school, high school and Central Education Campus buildings in New Prague, 45 miles southwest of Minneapolis. The male caller said he was inside one of the school buildings, Scott County Sheriff Kevin Studnicka said.

    “He claimed he needed help because there was a shooter in the building with an AK-47 and that there were a couple of victims,” Studnicka said. When dispatchers asked for the caller’s cellphone number, he claimed it was a new phone and he didn’t know the number, the sheriff said.

    Police Chief Mark Vosejpka said police and deputies quickly determined no one was hurt and zeroed in on the 12-year-old boy. Vosejpka didn’t explain what led them to suspect the boy.

    Parents rushing to the scene were directed to a nearby church. Students were dismissed from the schools by late morning. Classes were canceled for the rest of the day but were expected to resume Thursday.

    The middle and high schools have a combined enrollment of 2,067.

    It was the second such disruption in the district this year. Two months ago, a student phoned in a bomb threat, Superintendent Larry Kauzlarich said. That student was expelled.

    2. btw this bag is gorgeous a nice remake of the iconic speedy bag but i just saw it today on eluxury its almost double the normal speedy and im worried that louis vuitton seasonal products go out of fashion really fast.I saw the speedy irl, and decided to pass!

    3. No all students just irresponsible ones, because if this was an actual situation where there was danger in the schools a cell phone would be ideal to have and could possibly save a lot of lives.

    4. That’s why students don’t need phones at school. They usually get calls from parents in the middle of class, take pictures in the restroom, text their friends during class, and/ or this type of nonsense.
