Mansfield Sr. High Locked Down, Student Arrested

Written by

Mansfield Senior High School was locked down early Tuesday morning after reports of a student with a gun on campus. 

Mansfield Police were called to campus and, with the help of a school resource officer, were able to identify the suspect student. They detained him, but did not find a gun, until another student informed Police that the student had the gun off campus and kicked it under a trailer when he saw Police. 

Police later found the gun, that turned out to be an Airsoft pistol, but looked like a real gun. 

The student was arrested, though it is unclear exactly what the charges are at this point. 

The lockdown was lifted at Mansfield Sr. High just before 8 a.m. and classes resumed as normal. 

Mansfield City Schools Superintendent Brian Garverick notfied parents of students at Mansfield Sr. High, and while school remains in session, parents were allowed to pick up their children if they felt the need to.
