2222 E. Washington Ave. (East High School)


East High's School Resource Officer arrested a 14-year-old boy for possessing a dangerous weapon on school grounds yesterday afternoon after locating a pellet gun in his backpack. The student was cooperative, respectful, and shaking, saying someone had given him the pellet gun that morning. " I advised (the student) that I could see that he was scared, and that although I did not want him to be scared, I hoped that this experience was one that he could learn from, for he should not have a weapon on his person for any reason, especially at school," said the SRO in her report.
