Teen with guns causes scare at Evergreen HS

Posted: Updated:

Tense moments at a local high school Friday morning after someone spotted a student with a rifle in his car. It happened at Evergreen High School in Fulton County. That's north of Route 20 in Metamora.

School officials say the gun never posed a threat to students and everyone at the school is safe.

We're told a student drove to school and was seen moving two guns from the front seat of his truck to the back.

It was the principal who saw the student with the guns. He immediately called the sheriff's office and alerted the superintendent.

Sheriff's deputies responded to the school and did an investigation.

The superintendent says the guns never made it into the school, nor does he believe the student intended to bring the guns on school property.

"In the past, a lot of students, especially in rural communities, would have guns in vehicles," says Superintendent Jim Wyse. "We really can't do that anymore, and they should have that message, but unfortunately sometimes students forget that, and I think that's the case. But, at the same time, we are taking it very seriously"

The teen has been suspended for 10 days and could be expelled from school. He's also facing potential charges from police.
