LeROY (AP) -- A boy suspected of leaving a threatening note that prompted a southeastern Minnesota school district to cancel classes was in custody today.
School officials decided to cancel today's classes in the LeRoy-Ostrander district after a teen-ager took a gun from his home and left a note threatening to harm people.
School Superintendent John Varner declined Wednesday night to give a reason for the closing.
But earlier Wednesday, Mower County Sheriff Barry Simonson said a boy left LeRoy-Ostrander High School in southeastern Minnesota around 9 a.m., took a gun from his home, borrowed a car and left a threatening note. The car was spotted this morning near Stewartville.
The boy's name was not released.
