A courageous student at Topeka’s Landon Middle School and the building’s principal are being credited with thwarting a potentially major incident before it happened last week. According to a message sent to parents from Topeka Public Schools’ Superintendent Dr. Tiffany Anderson, a student was “intercepted” by the principal after being reported to school administration by a fellow student. Anderson said the student was a danger to himself and others at the time, and the district anticipates he will face various charges, including bring a weapon to school and attempted murder. The student, only identified as a 14-year-old male, was booked into the Shawnee Co. Juvenile Dept. of Corrections for Attempted Murder in the 1st Degree; Criminal Threat; Criminal Carrying of a Weapon by a Juvenile; Criminal Use of a Weapon on School Grounds.
