A teacher at Burke High School heard what sounded like a stun gun in a hallway last Thursday. A group of students were gathered in that hall and all taken to the principal’s office. A powerful stun gun was found in one of the student’s backpack. Omaha Public School District officials say several students went outside during lunch and were going to stun one another but they couldn’t get the safety off.
There was no intent to use it on other students and no one was hurt.
Three students were cited for carrying a concealed weapon while at school. School policy does not allow weapons in school and recommends expulsion.
