Less than an hour after an Atlanta middle school student shot a fellow student in the neck last Thursday, some Barrow County students had a gun scare of their own. In the Barrow case, a 15-year-old boy who had been expelled from Winder-Barrow High School put on a hoodie sweatshirt that had the name of a current student and that partially obscured his face. Blending in with students, he then boarded a bus he had sporadically ridden as a student. En route to the Glenwood community, he allegedly claimed he was carrying a concealed weapon. He didn’t display the gun or threaten to use it, but in light of recent school-related shootings, some students were scared and at least one of them reported the incident to police a couple of hours later.
