NBC Washington: A man was arrested at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Strasburg, Va., Wednesday, according to the Shenandoah County Sheriff’s Office.

Christopher Garret Johnson, 33, walked into the school with a 4-foot long two-by-four labeled “High Powered Rifle” about 11:40 a.m., the sheriff’s office said.

He was met by school staff, then detained by a sheriff’s school resource officer. He was arrested and taken into custody without incident.

No one was injured.

The man was apparently trying to make a point about security at the school five days after the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., in which a man shot and killed 20 children and six adults before killing himself.

“He made general statements about school safety and safety awareness,” a Shenandoah County officer said. “But the reality was, it was disruptive.”

Johnson faces disorderly conduct charges for the behavior officials called “inappropriate, at best.”
