Gun Incident at Abilene Middle School

An Abilene Middle School student was arrested Wednesday afternoon after allegedly taking a gun to school.

Abilene Police Lt. Mike Mohn tells KSAL News that his agency received a report that a student had taken a gun to Abilene Middle School. Officers were able to make contact with the student as he was walking home from school. A handgun was recovered from the student’s backpack.

Mohn says that the case is still under investigation, but at this point officers believe that the student did not threaten anyone with the gun. He allegedly showed it to several friends at school. The friends alerted an adult, who then called police.

The student, a 13-year-old boy, could face various criminal charges for having the gun at school.
