In the wake of the elementary school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut that claimed 26 lives, 20 of which were young children, a South Carolina teen was arrested for having a stash of weapons in his car on school property.
While this incident is untimely and presumptive conclusions can be immediately drawn about the student's motive to have the weapons in his possession on school property, given the Nation's (understandable) hyper-attention to gun control, school shootings, and overall school safety. Your lawyers in Charleston at Howell and Christmas, LLC want to emphasize that investigators, as well as the Pickens County School District, have expressly stated that there is no indication that the student had any plans to carry out an attack, or posed any threat to the school's student body and faculty.
The 17-year-old junior at Easley High School had a loaded .22-caliber revolver, nine knives, two axes, a stun gun, handcuffs, and more than 200 rounds of ammunition in his car at the time of discovery. None of the ammunition, shotgun shells and rifle and handgun rounds, matched the guns were the student's car, according to Easley police. Prior to the teen’s arrest, a concerned student notified school workers of the weapons.
