PCSO Press Release:


PCSO arrested four Lake Region High School students on campus yesterday in Eagle Lake, and located a firearm after a lockdown and a thorough search of the campus. The firearm, a 357 Magnum revolver, was recovered.

The investigation began around 9:00 a.m. this morning, Thursday, January 9, 2020, when a student reported to the School Resource Deputy that a handgun was seen on campus. The armed suspect, 16-year-old Caleb Allen, pointed the gun at another student, then passed it to someone else. After an hours-long search and review of video surveillance, deputies located the gun in the possession of two female students.

At the time that it was found, the gun was not loaded, although a bullet was located in another male student’s backpack (and that student was appropriately charged).
