Juvenile charged in ECHS gun incident

May 14, 2014 — Charges have been filed against a juvenile who brought a gun onto school property Thursday.

According to Grayson Police Chief Kevin McDavid, Officer Ryan McDavid was dispatched to a home in Grayson with reports of two males arguing.

“He went to the home and was able to get everything sorted out,” Chief McDavid said. “He followed them on to school and everything seemed fine.”

However, a short time later, one of the boys reportedly told the officer that the other young man had a weapon in his vehicle, which was parked outside East Carter High School.

The firearm was found in the trunk of the boy's car and confiscated immediately. McDavid says he doesn't think the incident is school related but is continuing to investigate.

The name of the boy is not being released because of his age.

Pam Kouns with the Carter County Board of Education said in a press release Thursday that there was no lockdown, and that the school, its students and faculty were in no danger.

KRS 237.110 (f) makes it illegal for anyone other than a law enforcement officer to bring a firearm onto school property.
