GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Prosecutors say they don't expect to file charges against a teenager that brought a pellet gun early Monday to Green Bay East High School.

The school had to be put on lockdown, then kids were evacuated and classes ere canceled. No one was hurt. Two people were arrested, but only one case was referred to the Brown County District Attorney's office.

Green Bay police referred a charge of misdemeanor disorderly conduct. Lasee says his office is still reviewing the case, but doubts charges will be filed. Lasee says a pellet gun is not considered a firearm, which could carry a more serious charge.

There still is no known reason why the teen brought the pellet gun to school.
