3/8/2019

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

An 18-year-old Whites Creek High School senior today was charged with bringing a gun onto school property after a .380 caliber pistol was found hidden in a bathroom ceiling.

A student’s tip that Michaiah Nelson was carrying a gun in his waistband led school officials to search the bathroom where they found the weapon hidden in the ceiling tile. During the search, Nelson reportedly said “you all must have found my gun”.

Nelson is charged with unlawful weapon possession and carrying a weapon on school property. He is being held in lieu of $1,500 bond.
