Nine-Year-Old Charged With Possession Of A Firearm and Interference with A Educational Institution

By Iesha Rowan

Today The Pinal County Attorney’s Office says it is bringing charges against a 9-year-old who brought a firearm to a Queen Creek school in August.

The attorney’s office said Monday that they would be charging the child with charges of minor in possession of a firearm and interference with or disruption of an educational institution. Both are felonies.

“Given the inherent danger involved with a gun being on a school campus, PCAO must take this seriously,” said County Attorney Kent Volkmer in a press release.

Multiple Arizona students have been detained as authorities continue to investigate a rash of threats that have been made at schools across the state in the last three weeks.
