Weapon Scare At Providence School

St. Patrick Academy on Smith Street in Providence was placed on a temporary lockdown Monday afternoon.

Principal Bruce Daigle says the school is on the same property as a soup kitchen, where a patron told an employee there was a weapon in his backpack.

The school was placed on lockdown and police searched the building. Authorities gave it the all-clear about 20 minutes later.

Nothing was found, and the patron had left by the time police arrived.
