16-year-old shows up at Granger High School on Thursday with a gun
WEST VALLEY CITY — After school started on Thursday morning, a 16-year-old male in 10th grade at Granger High School showed up on campus driving out of control and in possession of a gun.
“The former student was on campus, in the parking lot area, driving erratically,” said Ben Horsley, Granite School District Spokesperson.
According to officials, the student left the Granger High School campus after his father arrived. The student came back again.
By that time Granite School District Police had arrived on the scene. They stopped the vehicle and located a firearm. It was confiscated as evidence and the student was arrested.
“The vehicle was searched and a handgun was located in the vehicle,” Horsley said. “The weapon was not brandished, it was not used in a threatening manner. It just happened to be located.”
“It’s a former student, someone who hasn’t attended in several weeks. Fortunately, the administration and the police were there to take him into custody.”
“No protocols [or] emergency protocols were initiated because the student was already in custody when the weapon was located,” Horsley said.
