Why Not Attempted Murder?


A northwest Harris County middle school student was arrested Friday after bringing a handgun to school, officials told KPRC Local 2. Authorities said the 12-year-old female student at Dean Middle School, located at 14104 Reo St., threatened to kill a coach after being sent to the office. She was then suspended, and her parents picked her up. Officials said the girl returned to school three hours later with a gun and pointed it at two coaches and a maintenance worker. A Harris County Precinct 4 deputy constable stopped the girl, who was immediately isolated from students, according to authorities.

The campus was placed on lockdown during the incident. Students were detained in classrooms for about 15 minutes until officers took the student into custody. The principal sent home a letter to parents explaining what happened. Officials said no students were in danger at any time.

The student faces three counts of aggravated assault.
