He has been charged with aggravated assualt on a law enforcement officer, juvenile in possession of a firearm, interference with a law enforcement officer, and possession of marijuana.

Olathe Northwest principal Chris Zuck said that administrators learned from another student that the 16-year-old may have had a weapon in his backpack. An officer gathered the student from the cafeteria, as per the school’s protocol. Zuck said that there had been an altercation between the officer, student, and two staff members. The student was detained. Officials confirmed he did have a loaded gun in his backpack. There was no harm done to any person within the school.

Hi! I’m Faye Dent and this is my second year in SPUB. In my first year I improved my writing and interviewing skills, and I’m excited to capitalize on that this year! I’m the lead copy editor for the publications, and I’m really excited to not only edit but work with my copy editing team! My interests in SPUB are more geared toward writing and editing, but I truly enjoy every aspect that SPUB has to offer. Journalism matters because it is a form of self-expression which I firmly believe is important.
