Dispatch Text:

On April 1, 2022, at approximately 1:53 pm, the Alaska State Troopers were notified by staff at Tanaina Elementary School that a student was causing a disturbance. The Alaska State Troopers responded to the school and spotted the student outside walking toward the school. Troopers asked the student to stop; however, he refused and continued into the school. The student was making verbal threats toward law enforcement and school staff inside a classroom where no other students were present. The student was also holding a pen and pencil in a defensive posture while verbally threatening the lives of everyone inside the classroom. Troopers, law enforcement, and school officials made repeated requests of the student to stop his actions so that nobody would be injured; however, the student refused to cooperate. Fearing for the safety of the individuals in the room, as well as to peacefully resolve the situation as safely as possible, Troopers deployed a short burst of OC into the room to gain the compliance of the student. The student immediately complied with requests and was placed into protective custody by law enforcement. The student was provided precautionary medical care at the school, and the student experienced no injuries related to the incident. No students or staff were injured during the incident.
