Student Caught With Weapon At Local High School Arrested

KILLEEN (April 4, 2014) A student who was caught with a weapon Friday at Killeen High School was arrested, but few other details were released.

“Staff were alerted to a student being in possession of a weapon. Immediate action was taken, the weapon was confiscated and law enforcement officials took the student into custody,” Principal Susan Buckley said in a message that was sent to parents.

The type of weapon the student had was not disclosed.

The incident occurred a little more than a week after a student was caught with a gun on March 26 at Charles Patterson Middle School in Killeen.

“We received information of a student having a weapon on our campus,” Principal Jill Balzer said in the letter.

“Administration took immediate action and confiscated the weapon. Law enforcement officers took the student into custody and there was never a threat to student safety,” the letter said.

No other details were released.
