Gun At West Port
A scary incident at West Port High School has students and parents pointing fingers. Police say a student brought his mother's gun to school on Thursday.
16-year old Jacob Scott brought a gun to school Thursday, but didn't get very far. Principal Jayne Ellsperman received an anonymous tip from a student that Scott had a gun on campus. His mother says he brought it for protection purposes. Jayne Ellsperman says, the school once again came together during a tough time.
She says, "I'm very grateful that we have wonderful students that respond positively and maturely whenever there is a situation that they're concerned about."
Scott is facing third degree felony charges. West Port has not announced that there will be changes in school security because of this incident.
