January 11, 2018 (El Cajon) – After a teacher received a tip about a photo on Snapchat showing a student holding a gun in a classroom, administrators placed Granite Hills High School in secure campus mode briefly and notified authorities, NBC 7 reports.
The gun was later determined to be a BB gun which was brought to campus not by the student in the photo, but by another student, according to El Cajon Police Lieutenant Rob Ransweiler.
That student was arrested and charged with possessing a weapon on campus, but was later released to his parents.
Several interviews led authorities to a second student, who had the weapon, Ransweiler said. That student was arrested on charges of being in possession of a weapon on campus and was eventually released to parents.
