Student Brings Gun To School And Threatens Teen's Father

SPOKANE, Wash. - A 14-year-old East Valley High School student who brought a pistol to school last week was arrested Wednesday for both possession of the gun and for threatening to harm the father of a female friend.

School Resource Deputy Scott Streltzoff booked the juvenile male on charges of Unlawful Possession of a Firearm on School Property, Second-Degree Unlawful Possession of a Firearm and Felony Harassment.

Streltzoff said the origin of the pistol is still unclear, but that a concerned citizen had turned it in to Liberty Lake Police officers after taking it from a juvenile. The gun had not been reported stolen, so a trace was initiated through the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to see if a registered owner could be located. The results of that trace are not yet known.

Streltzoff began investigating the matter and learned that the suspect had brought the loaded .40-caliber semi-automatic pistol to Harmony High, the East Valley School District's alternative high school, one day last week. The pistol, wrapped in a tee shirt, was handed off to a friend of the suspect who in turn passed it on to a third student.

That student turned the pistol over to the adult who turned it in to police.

During his investigation, Streltzoff learned that the suspect had recently threatened the father of a friend after the father ordered him to stay away from the family's home.  

According to a witness, the suspect stated he was going to get a gun and shoot the father.  That threat led to the felony harassment charge.
