MONTPELIER, Vt. (WCAX) - Montpelier Police are holding a virtual town hall on Thursday to answer questions about the potential school threat last month.

Earlier this week, a Montpelier High School student learned they will not have access to dangerous weapons for the next six months after a judge signed off on an extreme risk protection order.

Police say they removed an AR-style rifle, a handgun, a hunting rifle, magazines and ammunition from the student’s home following that threat. Those will remain in police custody during the order.

According to Montpelier Police, the 5 p.m. virtual town hall Thursday will answer questions like what happened, what did the police do and why, and go over the safety police provide to schools.
