Serious Charge Against Ferguson Dropped

Buffalo, NY (WBEN) A felony charge has been dropped against the man arrested last month after he triggered a school lockdown.

The charge of criminal possession of a weapon was dismissed after it was determined Dwayne Ferguson had a permit for the gun found on him at Harvey Austin Elementary School, where he works with an afterschool program.

Ferguson still faces a felony charge of criminal possession of a weapon on school grounds and a count of obstructing governmental administration.

The lockdown lasted four hours when Ferguson was arrested.
