Maryland school locked down after student found with handgun

Maryland school locked down after student found with handgun”

Kenneth Daquan McCoy, 18, of North Charleston is charged with carrying weapons on school grounds and unlawful carrying of a firearm.

- A lockdown at Potomac High School in Oxon Hill has been lifted after police say a student armed with a gun was taken into custody on campus.

We're told when officers located him, he tried to run away but was caught immediately.

A school resource officer arrested a teenager Tuesday (9/26) morning after a handgun was found in his backpack.

Police have not reported injuries and said the high school was placed on lockdown "out of abundance of caution". Officers say they searched his belongings and discovered a.380 pistol, both.380 and another caliber of ammunition, and drug paraphernalia.

Last week, a 17-year-old student at R.B. Stall High School was arrested after police said he posted a photo of himself brandishing a handgun in a school bathroom and his place of work to Facebook. On surveillance video, that person appeared to have left school grounds, according to police.

As a reminder, CCSD now uses several methods to detect and deter contraband.
