I have been trying to get some current info. on Cherokee County schools and after hearing about Woodstock High's lockdown today I'm wondering if there have been other problems with this school or others in the area? I know this can happen anywhere, but just wondering how parents/students feel about the safety of the schools in this area.

The AJC online article has some info on other disciplinary actions at WHS, and it sounds like they have had very minimal issues other than what happened today.

Thanks, I read it and am glad to see that at least the gun wasn't loaded. I heard authorities were "tipped off" I wonder by whom? They deserve huge kudos!

Default clarification

I am a senior at Woodstock and we went into lock down right when I got there and just to clear some things up, it was 3 sophmore boys that were arrested, only ones name was released and the 15 year old was realeased. Forrest Busby is the kid who brought a gun, but it was unloaded and so rusty that it most likely couldn't even be used. And the 15 year olds parents tipped off Holly Springs police when they relized their guns were missing. Also, we went into complete lockdown and it took awhile before anyone could find out what was going on, so we weren't really too freaked out.

He's 17 years old and a sophmore? Sounds like a real genius- which may explain why he's in the situation he's in......

he hid the gun in the ceiling. it had no ammo, today. they are not sure if he was planning anything later down the road though. the other guns he took (with ammo) i guess he had no way of bringing into school that day.

creepy
