News Release
High School Student arrested with handgun at school this morning - 12/04/19

This morning, just after 11:00 am, our school resource officer at the Oregon City High School, 19761 S. Beavercreek Rd, learned from a tip that a 16-year-old student had a handgun in his waistband.  Our school resource officers and patrol officers were able to identify who the student was and learned that the student was in class.  We acted quickly and swiftly to locate the student and detained him without any incident.  The student was found to be in possession of several weapons including a handgun and ammunition.  We are currently investigating why the student brought the weapons to school.  We do not have any other information leading us to believe there are any other threats to students or staff safety.

The student was arrested for Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Disorderly Conduct II, and Threat of Harm.

We would like to thank those who came forward and provided us with this critical information.  We can’t emphasize how important it is that if you see something to say something because school safety is our number one priority.  We will continue to investigate this incident and are working closely with school staff.
