DUBLIN — Two men are behind bars after a student brought a loaded gun to Dublin High School on Wednesday.
According to Dublin Police Chief Tim Chatman, around 11 a.m., he got a phone call from a concerned citizen about taking a gun to the school.
The student who brought the gun, Jamori Hundley, 17, was upset and made threats to "shoot up the school," according to Chatman.
When officers arrived at the school and arrested Hundley, he had already transferred the gun to Jarrett Timmons, 18.
Timmons was arrested when officers recovered the gun in Timmons' car Wednesday afternoon on West Garner Street in Dublin.
Hundley will be charged as an adult with one count of possession of a firearm underage, one count of possession of a weapon in a school zone, disrupting school and making terroristic threats.
Timmons will be charged as an adult with one count of possession of a firearm underage, one count of possession of a firearm in a school zone, and obstruction of an officer for trying to hide the gun.
Chatman describes the gun as a small, semi-automatic weapon. The gun was stolen earlier this week.
He says this case is still under investigation by the Dublin Police Department.
Dublin Schools says they are grateful for the Dublin Department and their hard work and continued in a statement:
Dublin City Schools was made aware of a situation involving a student at Dublin High School and allegations of a firearm on campus.
Thanks to the diligent efforts of the Dublin Police Department and its investigators, the alleged perpetrator was apprehended and the firearm in question was retrieved off campus.
The school system is grateful to Chief Tim Chatman and his staff for their exhaustive work to ensure our students were in no harm and the situation was neutralized quickly and safely.
Dublin City Schools will offer no further comment on the matter at this time, and all future inquiries should be made to the DPD.
