A struggle ensued the second time the 18-year-old Dublin man returned to the school property, said Lindsay Weisenauer, the city's senior public-information officer. The school resource officer, who sustained minor injuries, used an electroshock weapon on the man, Weisenauer said.

Police resorted to using an electroshock weapon in a struggle that ensued when a young man approached Deer Run Elementary School after being asked to leave March 9, according to Dublin officials.

Deer Run briefly was on lockdown from about 11:40 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. March 9 after a man was asked to leave the property for taking photographs, district spokesman Doug Baker said.

A man was spotted in late morning taking photos, and he was asked to leave school grounds. When he later returned, the building was put on lockdown, Baker said.

A struggle ensued the second time the 18-year-old Dublin man returned to the school property, said Lindsay Weisenauer, the city’s senior public-information officer. The school resource officer, who sustained minor injuries, used an electroshock weapon on the man, Weisenauer said.

Police released the man to his parents.

"The preliminary investigation indicates that the incident was a misunderstanding," Weisenauer said but didn’t elaborate.

Deer Run staff and students continued their school day, Baker said.

No charges will be filed in the case "due to (the man's) severe autism," the supplemental report said. "This case should be considered closed."
