Flemington, NJ- A Hunterdon Central student held a teacher and a fellow student at knifepoint in a tutorial room after school for about 10 minutes yesterday over a grade that caused a loss of scholarship for the student. School officials said senior Jon P. Jung took teacher, Victor Milczek, and fellow student, Lissa Smyth, hostage around 2:30 pm. The situation was later resolved by the Raritan Police Department lasting only a few minutes with no major injuries reported. Both hostages were taken to Hunterdon Medical Center and treated for trauma after their release. Vice Principal Evan Gsell noted school would be in session tomorrow. “Although it was an unfortunate event,” he said, "Hunterdon Central is still as safe as any other school.” Vice Principal Gsell also said that the school’s security board would meet to discuss if any changes if necessary would be made to the security policy, however he was confident that this was an isolated event and that the campus is still safe. Police Chief Paddy O’Hara was the officer in charge. “The whole situation was resolved rather quickly” he said. Students were evacuated immediately after a parent notified school officials of a ruckus in the 700s wing. School officials released information regarding his motive saying that a low grade on a chemistry final exam caused John to lose a lacrosse scholarship to Johns Hopkins University. His anger was then directed at teacher Victor Milczek. Kirstover Favre was the expert negotiator on hand. “We communicated using the school intercom system. After a few minutes, we were able to calm Jon down and have him surrender”. Victor Milczek never expected a reaction like this from Jon. “I’ve never been threatened by a student at Central” he said. “Everything happened so quickly”. Mr. Milczek said he will not teach today and decided to consider his return to teaching considering retirement options. The other student held hostage was Lissa Smyth, a peer of John. “I was familiar with him but not closely related” she said. “He was always a hot head”. Lissa did not comment on whether she would be in school today. School officials said John never had a history of violent disciplinary action. The parent who alerted the school officials of the incident was Siobhan MeNann. She was registering he child for the upcoming fall semester. She told reporters that she will still be enrolling her child. She noted that she talked with her husband and child and they still believe that Hunterdon Central is a very safe school referring to their original reason for enrollment. The student will have a court session next week where he will be arraigned in front of the honorable Judge Karl Ngu. The prosecutor will be assistant D.A. Mathew Barnes. Police officials said John would be charged with assault with a deadly weapon and reckless endangerment which could carry a 10 year sentence.
