A plow driver called 911 this morning after seeing a teenager walking near Memorial High School with a long fix-bladed kitchen knife. The witness said the suspect attempted to conceal the weapon up a sleeve after realizing he was being watched by the plow driver. The caller informed that the armed teen was attempting to get into the school. This information was relayed to Memorial's School Resource Officer. The SRO, working with school staff members, intercepted the teen, disarmed him, and safely took him into custody. The Memorial student was transported to the Juvenile Reception Center for having a dangerous weapon on school grounds. The investigation is ongoing.
