LOCAL BOY DOESN’T MAKE SO GOOD

Interesting piece in today’s Fay Observer:

A student said he took a 9mm handgun to Westover High School in February to protect himself from other students.

“I was going to sell it, but at the same time I was having a problem with a couple of guys who were going to Westover,” 17-year-old Lamar Hagood told Superior Court Judge E. Lynn Johnson on Thursday morning.

In the 11 months since Hagood’s arrest:

* A student was charged with taking a handgun to Westover High in June. Investigators reported that the boy said he brought the gun because he had been threatened.
* A Westover High football player was accused of shooting another student with a BB gun on campus in August.
* A 14-year-old boy was arrested last week and accused of shooting into car with three students in it as they were leaving Westover High for the day. The teen, who doesn’t attend Westover, was charged with three counts of attempted murder and one count each of discharging a weapon into an occupied property, possessing a firearm on a school campus and trespassing.
