Student in custody after bringing gun to Nashville school
A student was taken into custody without incident after bringing a weapon to school.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WSMV) - A student was taken into custody on Friday morning after school administrators and a resource officer at McGavock High School found a gun on him, according to Metro Nashville Public Schools.
Administrators received a tip prior to searching the student, MNPS spokesman Sean Braisted said. The 17-year-old student was searched and a 9-milimeter handgun was found concealed in his waistband, according to police. He was taken into custody without incident and charged in juvenile court.
“Bringing a firearm to school is a zero-tolerance offense and a serious violation of law,” Braisted said. “We appreciate the school administration acting on the information received in order to keep students and staff at the school safe.”
