2 Brandon Valley students expelled after gun incident

January 9, 2018

BRANDON, S.D. (AP) — The Brandon Valley school board has expelled two high school students who brought an unloaded gun to school.

The Argus Leader reports that the high school was put on lockdown Dec. 19 after a report of a gun in the building. Authorities say one of the students apparently had brought the gun to sell to another student.

Police responded, found the gun in a backpack and arrested the two juveniles. They’ll spend the remaining 96 days of the school year learning from home.

The students will have to undergo a threat assessment before the school will consider allowing them to return in the fall. If they return, they’ll be placed at an alternative school.

The age and gender of the students were not released.
