Student brings pellet gun to Wester College in Mansfield – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth


A student at Brooks Wester Middle School in Mansfield faces consequences after bringing a pellet gun to school on Wednesday, the school principal said.

Principal Kourtney Gates sent a letter to parents saying they were told a student had brought a gun to school and police and school officials responded quickly to take possession of the gun .

“Mansfield ISD Police immediately confiscated the pellet gun, and the student who brought the pellet gun will be treated in accordance with our student code of conduct,” Gates said in his letter.

No injuries were reported.

Gates encouraged parents to talk with their children about bringing prohibited items to school and urged them to “confidentially tell an adult if anyone has an item that concerns them.”

In his letter to parents, Gates said providing a safe environment for students and staff will always be the top priority.

Wester serves 7th and 8th grade students. No information was released about the child or why the gun was brought to school.

Last week, an 18-year-old student at Timberview High School in Mansfield shot four people, including a teacher, after a brawl in a classroom. The accused shooter has been released on bail but is prohibited from returning to school. Classes resumed at Timberview this week.
