It was determined that there was no firearm or threat present at the school and the firearm was located off of school grounds, and was never a threat to the school or students. The juvenile was arrested and turned over to the Juvenile Probation Office.

“We are so grateful for everyone that was able to come out and all the equipment they managed to bring with them to make this a very special day for our students,” said Cox. “I have been coordinating this event for seven years and it just grows bigger and bigger each year.”
