HENDERSON, NV (FOX5) –
A teenager with a gun was arrested at Green Valley High School on the very first day back to class, according to Clark County School District police.
On Monday, a staff member saw a trainee “acting out” and got the cops included, Capt. Ken Young, of CCSD authorities stated. Officers discovered a pistol, however, it was not immediately known why the student had the weapon.
Authorities stated the student did not make any threats.
CCSD Authorities Chief James Ketsaa said teachers thought the student was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
An examination was continuous.
“It was all over like the internet and social networks. I was like, ‘What?!'” trainee Eric Smith said. “First day of school, and it’s similar to, ‘Woah. That’s just crazy.'”
“It was scary,” trainee Karter Kares stated. “However thankfully, the police were here to stop it before anything escalated.”
Trainee Nerriah Taylor said she understood the student however didn’t believe he would be the type of kid to bring a weapon to school.
“The very first day especially, I seem like that is really self-centered of him. I seem like he aimed to get attention,” Taylor said. “I never would have believed he would do something like that. I think he’s had a past previously, but not with anything this major.”
In spite of it being the very first day of school, this was not the first arrest of the CCSD academic year. In a different event, Young stated a kid was jailed the day prior to school started for making hazards towards Foothill High School.
Superintendent Jesus Jara stated he isn’t going to let those students spoil his first day of school at his new district.
“All of our children at Green Valley High School are safe and there was no issue, so I’m simply actually thrilled where we are as a system on our first day,” Jara said.
The teenager will be charged through the juvenile court system, authorities stated.
