OSWEGO, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — The Oswego City Police Department’s School Resource Officer, working with Oswego City School District Officials, identified the suspect in the September 4, 2019 incident in which a call was made to 911 regarding a gun at the Oswego High School.

The school was then placed on lockdown.

The suspect who placed the 911 call reporting a false incident was identified as a 14-year-old male OHS student.  The identity of the student is not being released due to his age.

As a result of the investigation, the student will be processed through the juvenile justice system on a charge that, if committed by an adult, would amount to Falsely Reporting an Incident in the Third degree and a referral will be made to the Oswego City School District for further administrative action.
