Cops: Boy, 6, makes knife threat at school

Just days after we read about the 11-year-old boy in western Pennsylvania who shot his father's pregnant girlfriend, we have some more disturbing news about a child involved in a violent act.

A 6-year-old boy in the Boyertown area walked into a boys bathroom Monday morning and swung a pocket knife at four other boys, according to both state police and the Boyertown Area School District.

No one was injured during this incident, which occurred at approximately 10 a.m.

"He did have a knife in the bathroom," Superintendent Harry Morgan said when reached Monday afternoon.

Morgan called an incident of this nature "very rare." The superintendent could not comment on the student's previous history.

Read the full story in today's edition of The Mercury.
