UPDATE: "We are aware of the situation and taking appropriate actions," said schools Superintendent George Stone. "We are cooperating with the Yorktown Police Department in their investigation and appreciate their continued work of helping to maintain safety in and around our buildings."
Yorktown police were conducting an undercover drug investigation outside Lakeland High School last evening when officers saw an 18-year-old waving something that looked a lot like a gun in the parking lot.
The Shrub Oak resident, whose name is being withheld because he is eligible for Youthful Offender status, was stopped by Officer Daniel Kaen. Investigation revealed the weapon was a BB gun.
The teen was charged with unlawful possession of a weapon on school grounds, a violation. He was released and is due in Town Court July 22.
