Lt. Andrew Cota says the 15-year-old student at Ansonia High School wasn’t charged, but the case was turned over to the Department of Homeland Security. Police say there is no danger to the community. Federal officials declined to comment.
The boy, who wasn’t identified, now attends classes in a Board of Education annex building.
An attorney representing the school and Board of Education says the boy’s dismissal was “out of an abundance of caution.”
The boy’s mother said at a board meeting that removing her son from school was an irrational decision.
