Callisburg student brings gun to campus

Callisburg — Callisburg Independent School District officials confirmed an unlawful handgun possession by a student while on campus.

The possession was discovered Tuesday on the campus middle school. Superintendent Steve Clugston said Wednesday he could not release the name of the student or the penalties involved due to student confidentiality laws.

However, he added that the incident involved no harm or threat of harm.

“Law enforcement officials were promptly contacted and appropriate steps were taken to ensure the safety of all persons on the campus,” Clugston said in a statement released Wednesday morning. “There was no threat of imminent harm since the weapon was immediately seized as soon as we were aware of its existence on campus.”

Cooke County Sheriff Terry Gilbert released a statement Wednesday afternoon explaining that at 1:47 p.m. Tuesday, a 13-year-old student was discovered as possessing a firearm while being searched for tobacco products.

“Units were dispatched to the school immediately,” Gilbert said. “Upon arrival the student was detained and transported to the Cooke County Sheriff’s Office where the Cooke County Juvenile Probation Department was contacted. The juvenile was placed in juvenile detention and is awaiting a juvenile court hearing.”

Clugston said firearm possession in a public school is a violation of both federal law and the Texas Education Code.

“As superintendent, I can assure you and our community that the Callisburg ISD continually strives to maintain a safe and secure environment,” he said.
