Police Arrest Janitor After School Gunfire Hoax

Investigators: Janitor Made Similar Call Last Week

FRANKLIN, Ind. -- Police have arrested a Franklin Community High School janitor accused of phoning in a gunfire hoax.

Authorities evacuated hundreds of people late Wednesday afternoon from the school after a caller indicated a gunman had fired shots in the building.

The call came after school hours, so only about 200 people were inside. Police said Shaun Starks made the call and that he confessed to doing it.

Starks faces charges of intimidation and two counts of false reporting. Investigators said Starks also was involved in a similar incident at the school last week.

"Because of the seriousness of the kind of report that it was, I don't think you're going to see any judge, prosecutors or anybody else laughing when the sentence is handed in," said Johnson County prosecutor Lance Hamner.

According to police, Starks made the call just before 4:30 p.m., telling them that a man was shooting in the school. They released a transcript of the call.

"At the high school there is a black guy in here with a gun. He has on a white and green shirt. (Loud bang.) Oh, my God."

Officers from several police agencies responded to the school, searched the building and determined the call was a hoax.

Police said the description of the gunman matched a man at the school, but that he was questioned and was not involved.

Investigators said the call came from the maintenance room inside the building.

Starks told police that students have been disrespectful toward him and that he had been called the "N-word" while working at the school.

Starks was being held Thursday in the Johnson County Jail on $5,000 bond. If convicted, Starks could be sentenced to as much as three years in jail.
