Union High School, Grand Rapids

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. Feb. 28, 2014 – A student was detained Friday morning after police say a student brought a gun into Union High School in Grand Rapids.

According to John Helmholdt, Executive Director of Communications at Grand Rapids Public Schools, “This morning at approximately 10:30am, a student was approached by security as part of an on-going investigation, escorted to a closed office, and searched. A gun was discovered. The Grand Rapids Police Department was contacted immediately and the school was placed in code red lock down as a precautionary measure until authorities arrived and the investigation was complete. All students are safe. There will be a communication sent home with parents.”

The revolver was not loaded, said Larry Johnson, director of security at GRPS.  The lockdown was lifted before noon.

Officials said Friday the incident culminated a week-long investigation between police and the school.

    Wow! So glad they found the gun before he hurt anyone–if that was even his intention. Prayers for the parents–if I had a student there, I wouldn't rest easy until they walked in the door even though things are under control!

      I guess I am assuming it's a male student. I apologize for that.

    Well, at least the city council members are protecting themselves from lawful, legal responsible gun owners.
    The proposed metal detector in city hall will server to keep lawful legal gun owners at bay, far better than keeping criminals away from children.
    After all, its for the children, and it takes a village…

    Those pesky law abiding citizens don't stand a change in Hart-Rapids.

    Maybe he wanted it for self defensive. Considering you are not safe at school. Gov doing drills to make it look like it’s us when really they are the killer whom want gun control.

    That's true, the lawful, patriotic, Americans have taken a beating under "Hope and Change"
    The Dems don't seem to like us very much.
