NY teacher snatches rifle from student, averts potential shooting, police say

Authorities say quick actions by a teacher averted a potential shooting at a northern New York high school where a 15-year-old student had a rifle concealed in a case wrapped in a blanket.

The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office says police were called to Indian River High School in the small town of Philadelphia, about 140 miles northwest of Albany, shortly before 1 p.m. Wednesday for a report of a student with a rifle.

Deputies say the teen sneaked the weapon into school and began opening the case containing the rifle at the end of a class. Officials say a teacher noticed and immediately secured the weapon.

Police were called as the school went into lockdown. The student was taken into custody. Police say he hasn't been charged yet.
