School Went on Lockdown, Student Thought to Have Gun

Posted: Updated:
PRINCESS ANNE, Md. – A Somerset County high school went on lockdown Tuesday morning after school officials thought a student had a gun in school.

It happened at 11:00 a.m. at Washington High School in Princess Anne.

Maryland State Police said officers responded to the school for an assault between two students. Police said a 15-year-old victim and 18-year-old D’onte Lee Marshall had an argument in a gym locker room. Police said Marshall then pulled out an airsoft toy gun and shot the victim in the forehead.

The victim sustained minor injuries but did not need medical treatment, according to police.

Marshall was charged with second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, and possession of a dangerous weapon on school property. He was released on $10,000 unsecured bond.

A school district spokesperson said the school was on lockdown for less than an hour.
