Fresno School Locked Down After Pellet Strikes Window


A Southwest Fresno Charter school is up and running after being locked down Monday afternoon when an apparent shot from a pellet gun went through a window.  It happened at
W.E.B DuBois Academy on MLK Boulevard at around 2PM.

Police were called to the scene when a teacher heard the sound of breaking glass and saw that the window had been shot.   The school was placed on lockdown, and officers arrived quickly.  Tonight they believe they know who did the shooting.  “”Officers are on scene right now determining that possibly the window was broke from a pellet gun.   Possibly from a neighbor that’s had some problems with the school,” according to Lt. Mark Hudson of the Fresno Police Department.

Investigators say they found older damage from other possible pellet strikes on other windows of the academy.  No one was injured, and so far no arrest has been reported.
