Two High School Students Bring Loaded Shotgun to Class
Published September 28th, 2012
CITRA - Two students at North Marion High School were arrested on Friday after they brought a loaded shotgun to school.
Alexander Aten, 14, and Donavin Saldania-Scott, 16, are accused of hiding the gun inside a baseball bat bag. That bag was discovered by a teacher, after several students came forward.
Deputies also found a plastic bag full of shotgun shells, a throwing knife, as well as a mask and gloves. The two students later told investigators they were planning to rob a nearby Gander Mountain store using those items.
Officials say the events happened so fast, there was not enough time to place the school on lockdown.
As a result, both students are now charged with the possession of a firearm on school property and conspiracy to commit an armed robbery.
