2 Weld County teens disciplined for bringing gun to school
WELD COUNTY, Colo. — Two teenagers at Mead High School in Weld County have been disciplined after sheriff’s deputies said one of them brought a gun to school and gave it to the other.
One of the teen’s parents contacted authorities whey they found their child had the firearm, said Weld County Sheriff John B. Cooke in a news release.
Investigators determined the teen received the weapon from a friend at school, who also had ammunition.
“Although both teens were in possession of the firearm for portions of the day, the initial investigation shows no credible coordination or collaboration on the part of either teen to act out any type of violent behavior on school grounds,” Cooke said.
Both teens were removed from school and “appropriate law enforcement actions have been taken to ensure the continued safety of the students and staff at Mead High,” Cooke said.
