Murray Co Student Arrested for Holding Another Student at Knife Point
by Kevin Sims

A Murray County High School student has been arrested for holding another student at knife point in a classroom. According to Administrative Services Director Mike Tuck, the suspect is 14 years old and is in the custody of the Murray County Sheriff's Department. His name is not being released at this time because of his age.
The incident happened Tuesday morning in a classroom. The suspect pulled out two steak knives and held them to a female student's throat. At that time, Tuck says the teacher and another student took action to free the 17-year-old victim. Her family tells NewsChannel 9 that the suspect had been harrassing her lately but that she was not physically harmed during this morning's scare. The school was put on lockdown during the event.
This is the second weapons incident at a Murray County school in the past month. A few weeks ago, a student managed to take a sawed off shotgun onto a bus and was caught when other students reported the weapon.
Tuck is not immediately clear what discipline the suspect might face. He describes both recent incidents as isolated but says the school will certainly look at all security options to keep students safe.

You got that right! They like to run away and hide from the big problems like bullying, weapons at school, education, the kids..... in other words, everything that is important.
