Clay County Sheriffâ€™s Department investigators arrested two juveniles Thursday on the campus of West Point High School on charges deadly weapons possession on school property.
WPHS was placed on lockdown about 10:30 a.m. Thursday, after a CCSD school safety officer recovered a weapon from a student after fellow students had reported seeing the student in possession of a firearm. Further investigation revealed another student in possession of a knife.
â€śAccording to some of the school officials thereâ€™s been some trouble brewing amongst the students â€” different groups â€” for a couple of weeks,â€ť Scott said. â€śThe school and safety officer have done a good job of keeping a lid on things, but it moves to a whole new level when they bring weapons to school.â€ť
