Parents, AISD Police Chief To Meet About Loaded Gun On Campus

Updated: Tuesday, April 1 2014, 07:35 AM CDT
On Tuesday night, parents will meet with AISD police for the first time since a loaded handgun was found at Webb Middle School on Monday underneath a portable. The meeting with the district's police chief comes as officers continue to try and piece together who brought the gun to school and who else may be involved.

There's the possibility of some pretty hefty charges for whoever brought the gun to school. AISD Police Chief Eric Mendez tells KEYE TV bringing a gun to school is a third degree felony, which could mean time behind bars at a juvenile facility. He also tells us the people who made the gun available could face a Class B misdemeanor, which could mean up to six months in jail and $2,000 in fines.

Moving forward, Chief Mendez says the department will pass along the information they find to the District Attorney's office, but they plan to continue their investigation Tuesday and in the following days. The big questions they hope to answer: who brought the gun to school, why, who supplied it, and who else knew about it.

"We will interview anybody and everybody that had anything to do with this incident to determine again who brought the gun to campus and then who supplied the gun to that student," said Chief Mendez.

On Tuesday night Chief Mendez will be meeting with Webb Middle School parents in the school's cafeteria. He'll be answering their questions about how the incident was handled and what happens next in the investigation. The meeting starts at 6 p.m.
