Toy gun forces Radnor lockdown

Radnor High School was briefly in lockdown Tuesday afternoon after a toy gun was pointed out of a car window near the school.

The school district went into lockdown as a precaution following reports of a weapon pointed out a car window on Lancaster Avenue, the school district said in a statement Tuesday.

The police found an individual with a toy gun, said police Lt. Chris Flanagan.

Police did not ask the school to go into lockdown. The school district said the measure was taken "in an abundance of caution."

An individual was in custody Tuesday afternoon, Flanagan said. He expected that summary citations may be filed against that person, whose identity he did not release.

"There was no crime, and no danger," Flanagan said.
