Three teenage boys face felony charges in connection with an April Fools Day prank that forced a lockdown Tuesday at Roxana High School.
Madison County State's Attorney Tom Gibbons filed disorderly conduct charges Wednesday against two 15 year olds from Roxana and Wood River, and a 16 year old from South Roxana. The charges are felonies but the cases will remain in juvenile court.
Police from ten agencies responded to the high school Tuesday afternoon after a text message reported shots fired at the school. The school was locked down for about an hour before it was determined that the report had been a hoax.
If convicted, the teens face sentences ranging from supervised probation to incarceration at a juvenile center.
