Man Shooting at Trees Leads to School Lockdown in Glastonbury: Cops

Glastonbury Police

Police said William Lesci was shooting a BB gun at trees near a middle school.

A Glastonbury Middle School was placed in lockdown on Tuesday morning as police investigated what turned out to be a man shooting at trees in woods.

This morning, two people told a school resource officer at Smith Middle School they’d seen a man carrying what appeared to be a green rifle.

Police started searching the woods behind the school where there is a public walkway and wooded trails and found William Lesci, 21, of Glastonbury, who had a Crossman BB gun. 

He admitted that he was shooting at trees, police said.

Lesci was taken into custody and charged with second-degree breach of peace; carrying a weapon on school grounds; and weapons, carrying and sale.

Police said Smith Middle School was locked down state until the search was finished.

Bond for Lesci was set at $25,000.
