School district: Student poured gasoline on security guard.

WILKINSBURG, Pa. (AP) — A suspended student poured gasoline from a soda container onto a school security guard on Monday when she was denied entrance to her western Pennsylvania high school, police and school officials said. Wilkinsburg police Chief Ophelia Coleman said the girl was taken to the police station, but investigators were waiting for her family to arrive so they could interview her.

Police and Wilkinsburg School District officials did not release the girl’s name, age or grade, though school board President Ed Donovan told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that she was suspended on Friday after an unspecified incident. Students at the seventh- through 12th-grade school in Pittsburgh’s eastern suburbs were initially evacuated to a nearby community center, then dismissed so their parents and guardians could take them home, Camarda said. Under the plan, 200 or so Wilkinsburg students will be sent to an underperforming Pittsburgh school next school year, Pittsburgh Westinghouse Academy, which has roughly 400 sixth- through 12th-grade students.
