Student who brought gun to Harrison Central High gets reduced bond

A 15-year-old charged with bringing a loaded gun to Harrison Central High School had his bond reduced.

The student was arrested August 5th on a charge of possession of a firearm on a school campus. According to our media partner, the Sun Herald, Justice Court Judge Brandon Ladner reduced the bond from $10,000 to $2,500 after hearing from the teen’s mom.

Ladner had rejected an August 18th request to reduce bond.

On August 5th, an assistant principal was told the teen had a gun and a school resource officer found the boy with a loaded handgun in the front of his waistband. His phone had photos of himself posing with the gun in class and around campus.

This week, his mother testified that her son is not a bad kid, that he attends church, and she doesn’t tolerate that behavior, but that he was susceptible to peer pressure.
