A 13-year-old student at Rafael Cantu Junior High in Mission CISD was caught with a handgun at the school Thursday, March 7, according to Mission Interim Police Chief Robert Dominguez. The student was arrested and charged with unlawful carry of a weapon and carry of a weapon in a prohibited area.
A letter sent home to parents by the junior high principal states that administrators acted on a tip that a student had a weapon on campus. The school was put on lockdown and police were immediately called.
Dominguez said the staff did a tremendous job in how they handled the situation.
