East Coweta HS student in custody after bringing gun to school

Students gather in front of Pittsfield High School on Tuesday morning for a rally in response to the recent shooting at a high school in Parkland Fla. that left 17 people dead

An investigation is underway with added police presence at the school.

The school called police immediately, and the student was located and interviewed. During the investigation, officials identified the suspect as 17-year-old Fernando Vasquez and located a firearm in his auto. He was arrested and charged with possession of a firearm on educational property.

NBC Charlotte is choosing to show Vasquez's booking photo and name because he's charged with a felony as an adult.

On February 28th, around 1:45 p.m., police officers were alerted to a threat of a possible shooting at Kerr Middle School. A resource officer said that an object struck a victim in the back of the head in a classroom.

Police are working with the Wagoner County DA to put together an assembly that will help educate students on the seriousness of these kinds of threats.

At this time, it is believed no threats to any student or school personnel was ever made. Police officers also responded to a person reporting a threat against Community Middle School received via Snapchat.

However, Rotorua Police said last night they did speak to Western Heights High School staff yesterday over a serious assault on a student, and an investigation is ongoing.

Earlier today, a 17-year-old Palo Verde High School student was arrested after a school administrator found a gun and ammunition inside his unattended backpack, Morales said. "These kids did exactly what we wanted them to, if you see something, say something", Lt. Richard Cordeau, spokesperson for the West Melbourne Police Department.
