According to NBC’s Channel 4 New York:
“Schools in Mamaroneck, N.Y. are locked down after a man with a gun showed up at a middle school and tried to get in, officials said.
The man left without incident, officials said.
He tried to access Hommocks Middle School through a side entrance that was locked, and then went to the main entrance, where he was stopped.
A campus worker asked him why he was there and noticed he had a gun, according to an email sent to parents. The man said he had the gun because he works as a security guard.
He said he wanted to retrieve an item of clothing he left in the pool area over the weekend, according to Mamaroneck Police.
Lt. Robert Koziak said the man was described as “pleasant.”
He was not allowed in, and left.
Parents were notified that schools were secured, and that afternoon and evening activities had been canceled.”
Society is utterly stupid.
That’s in Westchester county - one of the counties on the map published by the journal.
They have a pool at their school?
This story is weird all the way around. Glad the man was “pleasant”.
Is swimming a big winter sport in New York? I'm from California, so I'm not too familiar with how folks Back East entertain themselves this time of year.
