Teen Arrested After Bringing LifeCard Gun To School

MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN — A 17-year-old, Larell Walker, is facing charges for bringing a concealable LifeCard gun into a classroom at North Division High School, Milwaukee. The LifeCard gun can be folded into a small, wallet-sized rectangle, is no bigger than a stack of credit cards, and is lighter than a roll of quarters.

The incident, which occurred on September 11, has left parents questioning the security measures in place as the school is equipped with metal detectors at its entrances. Walker was seen playing with the unloaded gun during a class; it was subsequently confiscated by the teacher and reported.

The gun was found to be unloaded, and Walker had no ammunition with him.

He is being charged as an adult, with potential penalties including up to three and a half years in prison.

Milwaukee Public Schools notified parents about the incident, but many remain concerned and are seeking more information. The district has yet to disclose whether a lockdown was initiated, and further details about the breach in security remain undisclosed.
