UPDATE: Brooklawn Middle School was on lock-down Friday afternoon

PARSIPPANY —  At approximately 2:25 p.m. on Friday, February 16, Brooklawn Middle School was placed in lockdown after a student found one round of ammunition in a hallway.

School Resource Officer Detective P. McCarthy was present inside Brooklawn Middle School and was immediately notified by school administration of what was found. He immediately initiated an investigation and began the notification process. School Resource Officers are stationed inside multiple schools everyday.

Responding officers secured the perimeter and conducted a sweep of the school for any possible threats, weapons, or other ammunition. After the sweep was completed the decision was made to dismiss the students in a controlled manner.  

“We are proud of our students and staff for following our security protocol and apologize for any distress this may have caused,” Parsippany School District Public Information Officer Jonie Benos said. “Counselors will be available on Tuesday for any student needing to speak with them.”

The Parsippany-Troy Hills Police Department Investigative Division is conducting an investigation.

Brooklawn Middle School was dismissed approximately 3:00 following a lockdown Friday afternoon, Parsippany-Troy Hills Police said.
