Here’s a scary story for you.

Dona Ana County sheriff’s deputies say the gun they found at Chaparral Middle School earlier this week was taken to the school by a student who was allegedly trying to sell it. A student alerted a teacher about the gun and the school was placed on lockdown. The gun was found unloaded in the back of the school’s football field.

Parents are now saying the situation was mishandled. They are upset because school wasn’t cancelled and felt that their kids were in danger. The Gadsden Independent School District said the school was put on modified lockdown when they were told about the gun on campus as a safety precaution and to accommodate testing requirements.

Classes continued but doors were locked and students weren’t allowed in the hallways and when the gun was found later that afternoon the lockdown was lifted. Parents say they are angry that they weren’t told about the situation until after it was over and that testing apparently took priority. GISD officials say students were safe during the incident.

The student involved has been disciplined, but officials will not release any information because of privacy concerns.
