Radnor Student Charged After Tuesday Gun Scare, Lockdown
A Radnor High School student has been charged in connection with Tuesday's gun scare and Radnor High School lockdown.

Brice Snydor, 18, of Radnor Township, a student at Radnor, pointed a pellet gun out a car window it drove down Lancaster Avenue, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported.

Snydor is charged with disorderly conduct and possessing a replica firearm, Radnor Township Police told the Inquirer. Both summary charges could mean fines of up to $300.

Radnor High School was briefly under lockdown Tuesday afternoon following a report of a man with a rifle on Lancaster Avenue, district officials said.

Officials at Radnor High School heard a police scanner report about a man with a rifle around 2 p.m. Tuesday, and the school was put under a Level 1 lockdown as a precautionary measure.

The district said that students at both Radnor Middle School and Radnor Elementary School were moved indoors, also out of an abundance of caution.

The lockdown was initiated by school officials, not the police.
