After receiving requests for more information about the who had a gun on school property on Tuesday in South City, Patch spoke with South San Francisco Unified School District Superintendent Alejandro Hogan Friday afternoon.
As many South City parents are aware, the arrest happened at Westborough Middle School. The student had a firearm in a bag and showed it to at least one other student who informed an adult at the school, who then brought it to the principal's attention, and the police were called.
Superintendent Hogan said that no one was ever in danger because the student never brought the gun into the open.
Hogan said that when police asked the student why he had the gun, the student said he was expecting a confrontation with a person or group of people from San Francisco after school in a park.
As the incident happened in the afternoon, there was no time for the school or district to send a letter home to Westborough parents that night, but parents did receive a phone call to inform them of the event. Thereafter, Principal Ed Colucci sent home a letter to all Westborough parents.
