BECKLEY — A Woodrow Wilson student is accused of bringing a gun to school, even though police did not find a weapon.
Cpl. Sam McClure of the Beckley Police Department says the 17-year-old boy was arrested Wednesday and charged with bringing a dangerous weapon into an education facility.
The boy’s name wasn’t released because of his juvenile status.
School officials told police Wednesday morning that a student reportedly had a handgun in his possession. The campus was placed under lockdown and searched by K-9 units but no weapon was found.
The arrest was based on witness reports that led police to believe the boy had brought a gun to school at some point.
