MISSOULA — Missoula Police report charges were filed in youth court in connection with the lockdown at Hellgate High School on Sept. 2.
At the time, Hellgate received a credible threat towards the school involving a firearm. The school immediately went into lockdown, with a strong law enforcement presence surrounding the school.
It was determined following an MPD investigation that a firearm was not directly involved in the incident and only the threat of one was.
MPD spokesperson Lydia Arnold said since the case involves a juvenile — and is being filed in Missoula Youth Court — they cannot release any of the details regarding the juvenile.
