The Shelbyville Police Department was called to West Middle School Friday afternoon after a student was disrupting school.

The student was taken into custody around 3:15 p.m.

Shelby County Public Schools Public Relations Coordinator Ryan Allan said the incident started when a student wasn’t happy with a situation at the school.

Allan said there was no weapon involved in the altercation.

The student left the room after a teacher had tried to stop a behavioral issue. At that time the student entered an empty room and the teacher followed.

No other students were involved during the incident.

“When the threat was happening, officials were called just to make sure everything was safe and done correctly,” he said.

No one was transported as a result of the incident, Allan confirmed.

The school was not put on lockdown during the confrontation, but it could delay the school’s release.
