Possession of a Weapon on School Grounds – The School Resource Officer (SRO) assigned to Independence Non-Traditional School, was notified of a high school-level student in possession of a stun gun, Tuesday at 2:23 p.m.
The Independence Non-Traditional School, located at 14550 Aden Road in Manassas, is a K-12 public school designed for those students who have not thrived in other schools.
"The investigation revealed during a routine article search, school personnel recovered the weapon from the bag of the student and notified the SRO who took possession of the weapon," said a Prince William PIO.
The SRO determined the stun gun was not displayed or part of any other active threat to other students, faculty, or staff.
Following the investigation, the SRO obtained petitions for the accused, identified as a 15-year-old female juvenile, whose name is withheld due to her status as a minor.
After consultation with Juvenile Court Services, the case resulted in a formal action and will be handled through the court process at a later date.
A 15-year-old female juvenile of Woodbridge has been charged with possession of weapon on school grounds.
Her court date is pending. She has been charged and petitions obtained.
