DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. - A high school student was found with a gun Monday morning, according to a DeKalb School representative.
Authorities have released few details, but the representative said a 15-year-old was carrying an unloaded gun at McNair High School in the Gresham Park area. The 9mm gun was found in the student’s locker, the representative said. The school was placed on lockdown for several hours while authorities investigated.
The accused student, who had been suspended from the school, was arrested.
The incident marks the third report of a weapon found within the school system this month. Police said students saw a 15-year-old at Miller Grove High School with a loaded gun on a school bus Oct 4. Within a week of that incident, police said they found a Salem Middle School student in possession of a BB gun.
