STANFORD - Two Lincoln County High School students were charged after one suspect allegedly pulled a gun on the other during a fight Tuesday in the parking lot of Wal-Mart.
According to dispatchers, Stanford police Sgt. Greg Hill arrived on the scene Tuesday afternoon in response to a call advising him of a group of students fighting. He disbanded the group. Soon after he left, some of the students involved came to the 911 center and advised dispatchers that a gun had been pulled during the fight.
Dispatchers said the students had not informed Hill of the gun when he had been at Wal-Mart.
Police Chief Keith Middleton said the juvenile charged with pulling the weapon was sent to a detention center.
"The parents of the juvenile who had the weapon pulled on him signed a complaint ... The gun was confiscated. The juvenile was charged," said Middleton.
Animosity between the students had been present in school, said high school Principal Ty Howard.
