An 18-year-old student was arrested after allegedly causing a scare at a high school in Mountain View this morning, a police sergeant said. Police responded to several reports of a suspicious man dressed in camouflage and wearing a gas mask at Mountain View High School, located at 3535 Truman Ave., at about 8:20 a.m., police Sgt. Sean Thompson said.

Officers set up a perimeter around the school and nearby homes and searched for the suspect, Thompson said. Investigators contacted a student in a class at the school, and he admitted to the prank, Thompson said. The school was given the all-clear at about 8:55 a.m., the sergeant said. The student, Christopher Egerton, of Mountain View, was arrested for causing a disturbance on school grounds, Thompson said.

The high school was not locked down during the search and there was no threat to students’ safety, he said. Thompson said a student had dressed similarly several months ago, but that police have not yet confirmed it was Egerton.
