Wilds said that despite the apparently innocent circumstances under which the gun was brought on school grounds, the school system still treats the situation with “the utmost concern and seriousness” and will pursue “any criminal charges as allowable.”
Also, the boy has been “removed from school” at this time, said Wilds.
“Regardless if it was a mistake, it was a mistake with serious consequences,” she said. “We want parents to be fully informed and have all the facts before rumors get started. Having a gun on school grounds is non-negotiable.”
