RANDOLPH, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Randolph school administrators met with students to discuss school safety protocols on Friday after two shell casings were found in an elementary school classroom over the span of a week, according to Randolph Police Department.
On Thursday, January 19, a shell casing was discovered in a fourth-grade classroom at Donovan Elementary School, just 6 days after another casing was found in the same classroom on Friday, January 13. RPD said the casings did not have live rounds.
A shelter-in-place was ordered at the school after the rounds were discovered in both incidents. Police searched the classrooms in both instances and later returned with K9s to sweep the entire school. No other castings or weapons were found in their searches, officials said.
An investigation is underway to determine how the castings got into the school. Police do believe the castings found in both instances are related. Randolph Police are asking anyone with information to contact them at (781) 963-1212 or by calling district officials at (781) 961-6200.
