Person reportedly brings BB gun to high school in Kannapolis during domestic dispute

KANNAPOLIS, NC (WBTV) - A person was taken into custody after reportedly bringing a BB gun onto the grounds of a high school in Kannapolis Wednesday, according to Kannapolis City Schools.

The incident happened during dismissal at A.L. Brown High School. School officials say the person - who was not a student - brought the BB onto campus as part of a domestic dispute.

According to the school system, the person was later charged by police with communicating threats, disorderly conduct, and having a weapon on school grounds.

Dr. Parker sent a phone message to parents alerting them of what happened.

No one was injured in the incident and dismissal of school was able to continue.
