Hoover Middle School Resource Officer Deputy Doyle received an anonymous tip that the student was carrying some type of weapon. Once the student was observed, Deputy Doyle intervened and immediately took action. An administrative search of the student’s backpack allegedly revealed an unloaded semi-automatic handgun. The teen was arrested on scene.
The investigation is ongoing as to the motive for bringing the weapon to school and to determine how the teen obtained the weapon.
