Rockville and Montgomery County Police Respond to Richard Montgomery High School After RMHS Student is Assaulted by two Students From Different MCPS High School

Per MCPD: Rockville City and Montgomery County Police responded to Richard Montgomery High School on Friday, January 13, 2023, for the report of a gun on the school’s grounds. At approximately 10 a.m., two students from an area Montgomery County school entered Richard Montgomery High School (RMHS) without authorization and allegedly assaulted an RMHS student inside of the school.

The students left RMHS and reportedly returned to the campus, which is located at 250 Richard Montgomery Drive, at approximately 12:30 p.m., but did not enter the school. During this second incident, an RMHS student reported what they thought might have been a gun on one of the students outside of the school and reported it to school security. That information was shared with the RMHS principal, the police were called, and the school was placed on lockdown. The students outside of the school ran away.

Police can not confirm that a gun was seen on the high school campus. Responding officers secured the school and RMHS transitioned to a shelter in place. Officers remained on school grounds throughout the day and dismissal. No weapon was located on school property and Rockville City Police are investigating the assault on the RMHS student.
