STRASBURG, Va. (AP) - A man was arrested after he walked into Sandy Hook Elementary School in northern Virginia with a 2-by-4 board with the words "High Powered Rifle" written on it.

 

Maj. Scott Proctor of the Shenandoah County Sheriff's Office said 33-year-old Christopher Gerrit Johnson apparently was attempting to make a statement about school safety Wednesday when he walked into the elementary school in Strasburg about 60 miles west of Washington.

 

The Strasburg school shares the same name as the Connecticut elementary school where 20 pupils were slain last Friday.

 

Proctor said Johnson was immediately detained by a school resource officer and arrested by police, who charged him with disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor.

 

Johnson is being held without bond in the county jail. Proctor did not know if Johnson has retained an attorney.
