A 16 year old Lowville Academy student was undergoing a psychiatric evaluation late Friday afternoon, after allegedly talking of plans involving a gun.

"At no point today were any students or staff in danger," said Lowville school superintendent Cheryl Steckly.

The 16 year old male student "made comments to another student regarding plans he had for the future that included guns," Steckly said. She said the student mentioned both the high school and the local WalMart.

Another student told the high school's assistant principal about the comments, and village police and the Lewis County Sheriff's Department were called in.

Steckly said the student who made the comment did not have a gun and "He didn't appear to have the ability to carry it out."

The incident took place at the high school Friday morning The school was not locked down, nor were students otherwise restricted.
