Police Arrest 11-Year-Old After He Allegedly Brought Gun, 400 Rounds Of Ammo And Knives To School

An 11-year-old boy was arrested after he reportedly brought a handgun, lots of ammunition and knives to his middle school in Washington.

The student at Frontier Middle School in Vancouver, Wash., was charged with one count of attempted murder and booked into the Clark County Juvenile Detention Center, according to Q13Fox.com.

Officers were reportedly called to the school on Wednesday morning after being contacted and told that ammunition had been found at the school.

When officers arrived at the school, they located more than 400 rounds of ammunition, multiple knives, a handgun and the student responsible for bringing those items to the school. 

No injured were reported from the incident and the school was placed in lockdown for nearly two hours.

“It’s scary because my daughter comes here for an education and I have to worry about some kid being irresponsible and bringing something that can hurt her,” parent Brittanie McWoods told KOMO.

The Washington incident comes on the heels of several school-related violent incidents around the nation, CNN notes.

On Wednesday, a math teacher was found dead in the woods northeast of Boston, and her 14-year-old student is accused of killing her. Just two days earlier, a math teacher was killed and two students wounded by a boy who then killed himself in a Nevada school.
