Possible Gun Pointed at SW Wisconsin Student
The District Attorney is looking at possible charges to be filed against a southwest Wisconsin teen, accused of pointing a handgun at a student at an area high school.
According to the Grant County, Wisconsin Sheriff, the incident took place at about 4pm, last Wednesday, May 16th in the parking lot of the Lancaster High School. A student at the school reported that Ryan McNamara, a former student, pointed a weapon at him, but later claimed the firearm was an air soft gun.
The victim says the gun looked like a real Glock pistol, but was not sure about it's authenticity. No one was injured.
McNamara was located by authorities in Cassville, and arrested. He told the sheriff that he borrowed the air gun from a friend, to scare the student, and gave it back to his friend.
However, his friend did not corroborate the story.
McNamara was charged with Disorderly Conduct.
The investigation later determined that McNamara did have access to a Glock pistol, and had recently been shooting the weapon.
The case has been turned over to the District Attorney's office for review.
