Student charged after gun found in backpack at Western Guilford High School
GREENSBORO, N.C. — Greensboro police say a Western Guilford High School student is facing charges tonight after he brought a gun to school.
The 18-year-old student is charged with going armed in terror of the public and possession of a weapon on school grounds.
On Tuesday, a school employee heard that a student might have had a gun on campus.
The school resource officer pulled that student from class and found a gun in the student’s backpack.
A phone message was sent to parents telling them about what happened and saying no one was threatened or harmed.
