Nerf toy causes lockdown at Hypersensitive Long Island school



I heard the radio report describing a kid walking into school with a Lime green gun.  
So? 

I immediately knew it was a toy gun.  I can’t think of a nay gun maker making a gun that color and they don’t.  Hello, that’s the point it’s Lime green!


A lime-green Nerf toy gun caused an hours-long lock-down at a Long Island school on Tuesday.

A 911 caller told Nassau County Police she saw a suspicious teen at about 7:38 a.m. Tuesday wearing a black jacket and carrying a black backpack at Elmont Memorial high School in Elmont.
The caller said he was also carrying a lime green gun.

A SWAT team searched the school room by room.  Parents were allowed to pick up their children early Tuesday afternoon.

They eventually found the toy lime green and yellow lever action Nerf gun in a student locker.  Police did not make any arrests and the lockdown was lifted.

School officials confiscated the toy gun and say it will be returned to the parents.

Inspector Kenneth Lack says the heightened response was due to "an abundance of precaution."
