  • Pellet gun causes Loch Raven High School lockdown

Although no students with guns have been reported in Fort Worth schools, Superintendent Kent. P. Scribner sent a message to district employees: "Once again we are immensely saddened by the loss of innocent lives in yesterday's tragic shooting in Florida". The weapon was confiscated, and the student was arrested.

Police say 18-year-old Alwin Chen of Germantown brought a handgun to Clarksburg High School Thursday.

"This illegal and risky behavior will not be tolerated in our school community", Owusu said in his letter.

Turkey pledges $5 bn for Iraq reconstruction: minister
Kuwait, which is hosting an worldwide donors' conference to raise funds for Iraq, pledged US$2 billion in loans and investment. That money would include loans, loan guarantees and insurance devices to encourage American investment in Iraq.

In this case, Police recovered the pellet gun on the school's campus. The gun was not loaded, and officers didn't find any ammunition.

"News of a weapon on campus is unsettling for all of us, especially in light of the tragic events from yesterday in Florida", the letter reads. She wrote, "We want to assure you that we take all security-related incidents very seriously and we will always exercise caution regarding matters of safety". Each of our Plano ISD high schools and senior high schools has a school resource officer at the campus fulltime, and each of these police officers has had additional training in the event of a hostile situation involving a live weapon. Police had no prior contact with the student and said he appeared to have retracted his threat via social media after it was posted.

Lt. Frank Clark said the police department will continue to work closely with the school department to ensure students are safe. Working together, we can make a difference.
