About 10:30 a.m. Thursday, two teenagers were involved in a fight, possibly involving a gun, in a wooded area next to the school, Norcross police Capt. Bill Grogan said. One of the suspects, an unidentified 15-year-old boy who was not a Norcross High student, ran from the wooded area to the school, according to a Gwinnett County Schools Police report released Friday.
Norcross High was placed on lockdown while authorities conducted a room by room search for the 15-year-old suspect, who was ultimately found in a classroom and detained without incident, police said. A school resource officer took the boy to the Rockdale Regional Youth Detention Center.
