Suburban teen arrested for bringing gun to school: Police


ELMWOOD PARK, Ill. — A 17-year-old boy was arrested and charged with bringing a gun to Elmwood Park High School on Monday, according to River Grove police.

Police say a teenager was arrested Monday afternoon after reports that the boy left school grounds with a gun in his backpack.

The River Grove Police Chief released a statement:

“I’m not commenting on school policy or procedure, and that’s all the arrest-related information I’m releasing right now,” Michael Kanwinski said.

Elmwood students staged a walkout Friday morning at 10 a.m. to protest the school administration, saying they have failed students, according to a flyer.

According to an EPHS spokesperson, the school returned to e-learning on Friday due to a potential threat during the school exit. No further information was available and WGN is actively following this incident.
