Anchorage student accused of making threats with gun during online classes

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Officials say an Anchorage high school student has been arrested on accusations he threatened students and staff with a gun during multiple online classes. Police say the Dimond High School student attended several online learning sessions and disrupted them. An Anchorage School District spokesman says the teen made threatening gestures with a gun and used profane language before he was removed from the classrooms. The school district notified school-based police officers about the threats last Thursday. The Anchorage Daily News reported the suspect was then identified and arrested. Police say charges were forwarded to the Department of Juvenile Justice.
