PRINCE GEORGE’S CO. – A group of students at Bowie High School are in hot water after, officials say, they sprayed other students and staff with squirt guns and set off fireworks in the hallways.

The incident happened around 10:45 a.m. Tuesday as part of a “senior prank.” The prank resulted in a school evacuation.

School officials are coordinating with police and say the students will be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law and disciplined according to the PGCPS Student Code of Conduct.

“I am really disappointed by the dangerous and reckless behavior displayed by this small group of students,” said Principal Robynne W. Prince.
