Superintendent speaks on gun brought to Harrison Central High School

Harrison Central High School returned to school today following the gun incident last week that put a 17-year-old in handcuffs.

Prior to this incident, the school has seen a student arrested for bringing a loaded handgun to school in August 2022 and another in 2015.

News 25 spoke with Harrison County School District Superintendent Mitchell King who tells us that the district takes every precaution necessary to prevent issues like this to escalate.

He said, “Immediately after learning of a possible weapon in a vehicle at Harrison Central High School last Friday, we followed all district safety and security protocols. The investigation was turned over to the Harrison County Sheriff’s Department, and the student was removed from campus.”

As of now, no update on the student arrested has been made.
