EHS faculty member brings gun to school

LAWTON, Okla_A member of the Eisenhower High School faculty brought a gun onto the school campus this morning before turning it over to school officials. Parents received a phone call from LPS informing them of the situation late Thursday afternoon.

This is a transcript of that call:

"Prior to the start of classes today, a firearm was reported on the grounds of [Eisenhower High] School. The person in possession of the firearm, one of [the EHS] faculty, voluntarily turned over the weapon to authorities and surrendered himself. The case has been turned over to law enforcement officials for further investigation and appropriate action. Since it happened prior to the start of the school day, no students were endangered by this incident. Even so, we felt it was important that you are aware of what happened today at EHS. Now, as always, the safety of our students is our top priority."

LPS officials tell us the matter has been turned over to law enforcement officials and will not have any further comment due to the possibility that criminal charges could be filed and because it is a personnel issue.

7News has put in a call to the Lawton Police Department and are currently waiting for a call back.
