MT. LEBANON (KDKA) – Students at one local school will notice an increased police presence at school this morning.

It’s because of a verbal threat that took place during a fight Thursday afternoon at Mt. Lebanon High School.

Officials say it’s mostly a precautionary, after two 16-year-olds fought an 18-year-old student.

After the threat was made, school officials quickly notified parents of what happened.

Principal Brian McFeeley said one 16-year-old was in his office, when he said he was “going to get a gun and take care of this.”

Mt. Lebanon police were called in and found that the student who made the threat did not have a weapon.
The student was suspended.

As a precaution, police were asked to have an increased presence in and around the campus for several days.
