McCandless police said a sixth-grader has been suspended from St. Alexis School for the rest of the year after he threatened to shoot himself and his classmates when he was caught cheating on a test.
McCandless police also said they were not happy that officials at the Catholic school handled the matter internally and waited three days to alert them.
Police said the incident happened May 9 and that the student got very angry. The next day, parents of several students who were present told the principal that the boy was heard saying he had a bullet for himself and 14 others for his classmates.
Michael Latusek, superintendent of schools for the Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh, said he'll meet with school officials to ensure they know how and when to report such matters to the police.
