HARWOOD, Md. (WJZ)– A 17-year-old Southern High School student is charged with possession of a deadly weapon on school property after shotguns were found in his car Thursday morning.
At around 9:30 a.m., a school resource officer responded to the school parking lot to assist school staff with a search of a student’s vehicle, where they believed they’d find alcohol.
Apparently, the male student was caught with alcohol the day before.
What they found instead were three unloaded shotguns in cases, ammunition for the guns and a hunting knife.
Further investigation indicated that the student and a friend were shooting guns on a farm recently, and he did not remove the weapons and ammunition from his vehicle.
There is no indication that threats of any kind were made at any point.
The weapons were seized. The student has been charged as a juvenile.
