11-year-old NISD student found with gun on campus, administrators say

Kallison Elementary leaders say the student will face "appropriate disciplinary measures."

SAN ANTONIO — An 11-year-old student at Kallison Elementary is expected to be arrested after administrators say they brought an unloaded gun to campus on Thursday. 

Principal Billy Navin wrote in a letter to parents that an investigation was launched with NISD police after the student, a fifth grader, "self-reported" the firearm to a school counselor. According to Navin, the gun was shown to at least one student on Kallison campus but other peers "may have been aware."

"Appropriate disciplinary measures will be taken, including the arrest of the student," wrote Navin. "The safety and wellbeing of the students is a high priority at Kallison Elementary."

This is at least the third incident of a student bringing a gun to school in the region this year. In late January a Bandera Middle School student was found with an "antique-type" firearm in their backpack, and on Feb. 14 authorities said a LEE High student brought a gun to campus

No shots were fired in any of the three incidents. 

It's unclear what further consequences the Kallison student may face.
