East High SRO arrests student with pellet gun in backpack

MADISON (WKOW) -- East High School's resource officer arrested a 14-year-old boy Tuesday for possessing a dangerous weapon on school grounds.

According to a Madison police incident report, the student had a pellet gun in his backpack.

Police say the student was cooperative, respectful and shaking, saying someone had given him the pellet gun that morning.

"I advised (the student) that I could see that he was scared, and that although I did not want him to be scared, I hoped that this experience was one that he could learn from, because he should not have a weapon on his person for any reason, especially at school," the SRO wrote in her report.
