(Wyo.)-Casper Teen Suspended For Bringing Loaded Gun To School
CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - A Casper teen has been suspended for bringing a loaded handgun to school.
The unidentified student brought the gun to Kelly Walsh High School Thursday but didn't threaten anyone. Students told a faculty member at 7:45 a.m. and staffers found the student and the gun soon afterward.
The incident came less than a week after the Connecticut school shooting.
Sgt. Deahn Amend says the student thought it would be "cool" to take the weapon to school.
Principal Brad Diller said he couldn't recall anyone else every bringing a gun to the school but said there had been cases of hunting rifles left in vehicles.
The student is suspended for 10 days and the school board will consider whether he should be expelled. He was also cited by police.
