Expelled student brings knife to school

Posted: Updated:

AUSTIN, IN (WAVE) – A sixth grade love triangle apparently led to trouble at a Scott County school on Wednesday.

A young man upset about a breakup posted on Facebook overnight that he would show up at Austin Middle School with a knife and a gun, according to Superintendent Berley Goodin. Security found the boy walking in a school hallway Wednesday morning with a knife in his possession. No gun was found.

The boy was taken to jail because he violated the district's no tolerance policy on weapons on campus.

Two other boys were questioned and released to their parents.

Goodin said the boy's sixth grade girlfriend recently broke up with him and had begun dating another young man. That's apparently what led to the incident.

The boy was previously expelled from the school but was doing online work in a library at Austin Middle School, Goodin said.
