    GA - Metro Atlanta: Handgun at school, 2 boys arrested

    Incident is apparently over now. Officials got a tip, the gun had been stowed away under a ceiling tile in a restroom.... no report yet on what their intentions were.

    During the lockdown, many students were communicating with parents & others via text messages or calls. Cell phones are not allowed in most public schools but I'm sure those messages provided relief for many concerned... in comments, you'll see some students messaged the media to tell what was going on.

    I chose to post this under "crimes" because there is certain to be more than "up to the minute".

    Updated on the first article that noZme posted in post #1:

    "Three Cherokee County high school students were in custody Thursday after police got a tip they planned to go to Woodstock High School armed with guns and ammunition. One student had been charged as of 11 a.m."

    "Cherokee County news Police found an unloaded handgun in a bathroom at Woodstock High School and two assault rifles and about 200 rounds of ammunition at the home of one of the students. They said they have not determined if the students actually planned to use the weapons."

    From second article posted in post #1:

    "Holly Springs police told Channel 2 Action News reporter Ross Cavitt a 17-year-old and a 15-year-old were taken into custody. Police said they were going to serve a warrant at the homes of both the students."

    This story reminded me of one on our local news this morning. A 17 year old was entering a local Chuckie Cheese restaurant when a handgun fell out of his pants waistband. He bent over, picked it up, and continued on his way, entering the restaurant after replacing the handgun in his waistband. Fortunately observers contacted police who showed up and arrested the young man inside the restaurant.
