Student Brings Pellet Gun to Mansfield’s Wester Middle School

Students at Brooks Wester Middle School in Mansfield face consequences after bringing pellet guns to school on Wednesday, the principal said.

Principal Courtney Gates sent a letter to parents informing them that the students had brought their guns to school and that the police and school staff had acted swiftly to collect the guns.

“ITS Police in Mansfield will immediately confiscate pellet guns and students who bring them will be treated according to our code of ethics for students,” Gates said in his letter.

No casualties were reported.

Gates encourages parents to talk to their children about bringing prohibited items to school and “quietly notifying adults if someone has items that are important to them.” What is needed.

In a letter to his parents, Gates said that providing a safe environment for students and staff has always been a top priority.

Wester serves students in grades 7 and 8. No information has been released about why children or weapons were brought to school.

Last week, an 18-year-old student at Timberview High School in Mansfield shot dead four people, including a teacher, after an argument in class. The alleged shooter was released on bail but not allowed to return to school. Classes at Timberview resume this week.
