Forsyth County student arrested for having gun on campus

By AccessWDUN Staff

A Forsyth County student was arrested Tuesday at Little Mill Middle School for having a gun in their possession.

The Little Mill Middle School administration was alerted by a student to the possibility that a different student had a gun on campus, according to the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office.

The 14-year-old student was removed from class and searched by a school resource officer, who found a loaded 9mm pistol in the student's waistband.

The student was immediately arrested and was transported to the Regional Youth Detention Center.

No one at the school was injured and the school has been reported secure. The FCSO is continuing to investigate the incident with the help of the Forsyth County School system, officials said Tuesday.

“This is a sobering example of why it is so important to emphasize 'see something, say something' to our kids and students as it takes all of us to keep our kids and schools safe," Sheriff Ron Freeman said. "The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office has over 50 Deputy Sheriff SROs working in our School System. One or more SROs are assigned to every school campus in partnership with our FCSS."
