NH police charge minor with lying about gun threat

Updated:

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Police in New Hampshire are charging a 16-year-old Concord High School student with lying about a man threatening her with a gun on school property — which prompted an after-hours evacuation of the school and a large police response.

Concord police are not naming the female because of her age. She was charged Tuesday with making a false report to law enforcement — a misdemeanor.

Police charged an 18-year-old student with felony criminal threatening the night of the April 30 incident, but dropped the charge the next day after detectives said they determined his accuser had lied.

Police did not release any additional information on the girl's status or bond, saying only that she would be arraigned within seven days at Concord Family Court.
