False Call About Student With Weapon Brings Police to West Hartford's Conard High School: Principal

Police responded to Conard High School in West Hartford Tuesday morning after a call was made reporting a student had weapons in the building and they said it turned out to be a false claim.

Police said they received a 211 call just before 8 a.m. from a teenage boy who said he was at Conard High School with weapons and wanted to harm others and himself.

The school resources officer was already at school when the call came in and more officers immediately responded, police said.

Officers checked and secured the school and found nothing unusual.

Police said they have reason to believe the phone call came from outside the United States and they are looking at a juvenile suspect.

Police said no one at the school was in danger.
