16-year-old arrested with gun at East High parking lot
MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Three people have been arrested, including one who had a gun, after trespassing onto East High School’s parking lot, Shelby County Schools said.
According to a report, a deputy noticed the trespassers in the parking lot of the school on Wednesday and saw that the teenager was armed with a gun in his waistband. When the deputy tried to approach the teenager, he tossed the gun in a car with “a waiting adult.”
The adult, identified as 27-year-old Kourtney Jimerson, told deputies the gun belonged to him. He has been charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the incident.
SCS officials say parents have been notified, and the trespassers were “at no time a threat.”
