Two Teens Charged with Carrying a Gun onto School Property


Jonathan Duke, 18, and a 16-year-old male were arrested this morning for carrying a handgun on school grounds at John Overton High School, 4820 Franklin Pike.

A basketball tournament was being played at the school, which was not in session. A school principal was made aware of two young men armed with a gun. She advised an off-duty MNPD officer who saw Duke and the second teen enter a gray car in the school parking lot. The officer initiated a conversation with the pair and immediately noticed, in plain view, a Ziploc baggie of marijuana inside the vehicle. The officer asked whether there were any weapons in the car and Duke, who was in the driver’s seat, stated that there was a gun under the passenger seat.

Duke and the 16-year-old were taken into custody. Neither teen attends John Overton High. They are both charged with carrying a weapon onto school property and marijuana possession.
