A fifteen year old student was handcuffed and arrested for possessing an electric “stun gun” at GHS on Wednesday. The student was charged  with possessing and carrying a dangerous weapon on school grounds.

The teen was found acting suspicious near the field house bathrooms far from his appropriate classroom.  Administration searched the student’s backpack, and found the weapon.

The school notified the student’s mother, and the teen was taken to juvenile court in Salem, MA.  Teachers and students were not informed of the incident until the Gloucester Daily Times reported the story on Friday.
