Havre police officers escorted or transported a child from the Havre Middle School Thursday.
Officials would not make much comment about the situation. Havre Police Chief Kevin Olson said a juvenile has been detained and they think they have resolved the issue in an appropriate fashion.
"I feel that the safety and sanctity of the school has been preserved," Olson said.
