A D.C. school had a lockdown. This is the conversation that prompted it.

The exact wording of what the boy shouted across the hall between classes at BASIS DC Public Charter is a matter of debate, but one word stood out: “Shoot.” Yes, his friend agreed: They would “shoot” after school.

A teacher overheard the students exclaiming that they “we’re gonna shoot up the school.” Law enforcement was summoned, and a lockdown ensued at the downtown D.C. school lasting more than an hour, according to a police report on the May 4 incident. The students were questioned by police, and a sergeant with the federal Joint Terrorism Task Force was on the scene.
