Police say substitute teacher brought gun to school

A substitute teacher at a southeast valley elementary school may face charges after bringing a gun onto campus.

Clark County School District police Lt. Ken Young said a small-caliber handgun was found about 1:30 p.m. in a staff-only area of Cunningham Elementary School, near Flamingo Road and Nellis Boulevard.

The gun was discovered in a fanny pack left in an area that was not accessible to students, Young said.

The teacher had a concealed weapons permit for the gun, but bringing it onto campus is illegal, he said.

Police do not believe the substitute teacher brought the gun with any ill intent.

School police plan to forward the case to the Clark County district attorney’s office.

The teacher could face charges of possession of a dangerous weapon on school property.
