A 16-year-old Del Sol Academy of the Performing Arts student was arrested on campus around 11:25 a.m. Thursday. The teen was found with a loaded 9mm on him. He was transported to the juvenile detention center and is facing a charge of possession of a dangerous weapon on school property.
Greg Misel, the principal of Del Sol Academy sent out the following information:
“As principal, my top priority is to ensure your child is safe at school, and to keep you informed of important issues happening within our school community.
Today, Clark County School District Police were on campus investigating a matter and in the course of their investigation recovered a loaded firearm from a student. The individual has been arrested. Additional police were on campus today out of an abundance of caution. At no time was there a threat made to our school or students.
Please encourage your child to report any perceived threat, including possible weapons on campus, through SafeVoice, a school administrator, or to law enforcement.
Thank you for your continued support. It is with your help by sharing information about possible disruptions on campus and talking with your students that we can become aware of potential safety concerns and take proper action to protect our campus.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call us at 702-799-6830.”
