Maryland high school student captures moment SWAT team swarms classroom



TOWSON, Md. (WBFF) - It was a scary scene for students inside the classroom where Baltimore County Police tactical officers moved in to arrest a student thought to have a pellet gun.

It happened at Loch Raven High School Thursday.

Greggor Hines, a 17-year-old senior, said he was sitting in his AP economics class when he knew something was about to go down. So, he grabbed his phone.

The tactical officers stormed Hines' classroom. Seconds later, police grabbed a boy and his backpack. That's when Hines grabbed his cell phone and captured the arrest on camera.

"It was a stressful situation, 'cause there are, like, guns coming into the classroom. At that point and time, then I focused on really being aware of the situation, listening to the instructions of the SWAT members and then filming," said Greggor.

At first, Greggor said no one had any idea that the boy sitting in his classroom was the student police were looking for.

"He came in, he was out of breath, really on edge," said Greggor.

The teacher had seen the suspect in the hallway when the school went on lockdown. And per protocol, the teacher unwittingly pulled the student in the classroom behind locked doors.

"You know, come to find out, that was the person they were looking for," said Greggor. "There could've been a possibility, if the kid had made a wrong move, I mean, he definitely could've been shot."

Greggor said at one point, he was frightened and can't imagine what those students in Florida went through during that school shooting rampage that happened just the day before.
