Police operation at Danish school after 'shooting' threat by student



Sauk Rapids Police Chief Perry Beise says the boy randomly cut three children at Pleasantview Elementary School on Monday morning, then went into the office and set the knife down. He was released to his parents due to his age.

The police chief in a Minnesota city where an 8-year-old slashed three other students with a knife says he wishes he knew why the boy did it. The attacker will not be allowed back in school, the superintendent said. Watkins says he believes the injuries aren't life-threatening, and the students were taken to the hospital by their parents. The incident lasted approximately 5 minutes and resulted in three students being injured and the aggressor was contained in the office.

Three students were wounded. Sauk Rapids police declared that they are not going to press charges, the child needing counseling and guidance rather than jail.

The incident occurred before classes had started.

But Greer seemed confused, or at least to feel that the common enemy in the situation was "the firm", and not Harry or Meghan. Just say, "That's it". "I think she'll bolt".

Children under the age of 10 can not be criminally charged in Minnesota.

School officials say mental health support will be available for students and staff who witnessed the attack. Pleasantview has 720 students in kindergarten through fifth grade, according to the school district's website. The police report will be forwarded to the Benton County Attorney's Office.

An area elementary school is closing at the end of the school year.

A number of armed police were despatched to the school in the town of Ishøj near Copenhagen after the student, who was previously expelled from the school, reportedly made the threats.
