Parent disarmed student with guns at Utah school

BOUNTIFUL, Utah (AP) – A school district spokesman says a student who fired a shot into the ceiling of a Utah middle school Thursday morning is still inside the school being questioned by police.

Davis School District spokesman Chris Williams told KSL-TV that he had had no details about the student’s identity or whether the student had any history of trouble or incidents at Mueller Park Junior High in Bountiful.

Bountiful police say no one was injured and a parent disarmed the student.

Lt. Dave Edwards says investigators are still trying to determine if the student intentionally fired the gun or if it fired accidently while the parent intervened.

Police recovered two guns from the student.

Edwards did not have immediate details about why the student had the guns or how the parent encountered the student in the school.
