Officer Gary Gephardt heard a loud pop from the Perry Hall High School cafeteria, which he thought could be firecrackers, an exploding milk carton or a gunshot. As teens spilled out of the cafeteria, he drew his service weapon with one hand and blocked fleeing students with the other as he headed into the room. There he found two staff members restraining the alleged shooter and a student lying wounded on the floor, the officer testified Friday in a Baltimore County court hearing.

Despite the noise, crowds and chatty friends surrounding her in the Arundel High School cafeteria, Aleshia Highland was finishing her physics homework and her lunch. The senior from Odenton planned to spend the last half of her new 50-minute lunch period with a book club called the Socratic Cafe. She couldn't join when the group met after school because she has to catch a bus. The extended lunch period also gives her extra time after school.

A Holabird Middle School student was disciplined after an inoperable starter pistol was found in his locker Wednesday, Baltimore County schools officials said. The Dundalk school sent a letter home with students about the discovery of the gun, and an investigation involving county police indicated that the student did not plan to threaten or hurt anyone, schools spokesman Charles Herndon said.
