Susquehanna Township High School was placed on lock down Thursday after a student was reportedly shot with a pellet gun on school property,  according to a statement posted on Susquehanna Township police department’s Facebook page.

Officers seized a pellet gun at the home of the suspected student during the lock down, authorities said.

The student involved has been suspended, according to Susan Anthony, Susquehanna Township School District spokeswoman.

An automated “robo call” went out to parents to inform them of the situation and the subsequent lock down, Anthony said.

In addition to the pellet gun investigation,  police charged four  students who were involved in two separate fights at the high school.

The charges against each student were not provided by police.
