Parents disarmed their son who brought guns to Utah school

AP  |  Bountiful (US) 

Police said two fast-acting Utah parents disarmed their own 15-year-old son in the hallway of a Utah middle school today after the troubled teenager brought the family's shotgun and handgun to school and fired at least one round without injuring anyone.

Bountiful Police Chief Tom Ross said the boy's mother and father became concerned about their son this morning. They went to Mueller Park Junior High in the northern Utah city of Bountiful when they noticed their weapons were missing. Ross said the parents confronted their son in a school hallway and disarmed him.



Police were still trying to learn whether the student intentionally fired the gun or if the weapon went off accidently while the parents intervened.

Ross did not immediately have details about whether anyone else was around but he says students were in classes nearby. Ross did not know whether a gun fired more than once or how the parents disarmed their son or their specific concerns about him.

Ross did not know why the student brought the weapons to the school or what he intended.

A teacher called 911 and a police officer who happened to be down the street arrived and took custody of the student soon after, police said.
