Shorewood Hills parent arrested for delivering “gun” note to school receives punishment

MADISON (WKOW) — Court records show the man who walked into a Shorewood Hills Elementary School class and delivered a note that said “gun” likely will not have jail time.

Jonathan Fitzgerald pleaded no contest to a disorderly conduct charge and was found guilty.  He was ordered to 200 hours of community service, or 25 days in the Dane County Jail if he does not complete those hours.

Police in Shorewood Hills said, in February Jonathan Fitzgerald was allowed into Shorewood Elementary School, went into a classroom, told teachers he was an intruder and gave them a piece of cardboard that said “gun” on it. Court records show he told the teacher, “You just let a gunman into your school.  What do you have to say about this?”

He then went to the office and gave administrators a similar piece of cardboard before leaving the school and later being arrested, police said.
