Joe T. in 'lockdown'

Posted By on Thu, Dec 4, 2008 at 5:09 PM

Robinson High School was in lockdown for a period of time this afternoon after a gun was found in a locker. Student taken into custody. No other guns found. All otherwise appears to be well.


LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas (December 4, 2008) – After receiving an afternoon “tip,” Robinson High School officials searched a student’s locker discovering a gun. Immediately upon removing the gun, principal June Haynie contacted the Pulaski County Sheriff’s office and had the student to whom the locker was assigned brought into the school office. Sheriff’s officers then took the student into custody.
 The incident took place at approximately 2:30 p.m. this afternoon, immediately prior to the 2:46 p.m. dismissal bell. The school was quickly “locked down” with no one allowed to enter or exit until all lockers had been searched. No other weapons were found. Students were released at 4 p.m.
