A 17-year-old Killeen High School student was arraigned Monday after police said they caught him carrying a gun on campus last week.

Brandon Tiontre Woods faces a charge of unlawfully carrying a weapon on school premises. Justice of the Peace Garland Potvin set Woods’ bail at $50,000.

According to an arrest affidavit, Killeen Independent School District police responded to a report of an individual with a gun at Killeen High School on Friday. School officials told police they believed Woods had a gun.

An officer spoke with Woods, who admitted he had a firearm in his backpack. Police recovered a .38-caliber pistol, the affidavit stated.

The incident marked the second time this year a Killeen High School student was caught with a gun on campus.

On Jan. 30, 17-year-old Jonathon Allen Hampton was arrested after police found a .22-caliber pistol, ammunition and a ski mask in a backpack in his locker. Hampton was indicted March 19 by a Bell County grand jury on a felony charge of possession of a prohibited weapon.

Woods’ arraignment Monday came the same day the district notified Palo Alto Middle School parents of yet another incident. A student was in possession of an “imitation” gun designed to fire blanks only, Palo Alto principal Matt Widacki said in a letter to parents.

Potvin also arraigned the following individuals on unrelated charges Monday:

Martin Clinton Gregory Jr., 26, on a charge of assault of a family or household member, strangulation. Gregory’s bail was set at $100,000.

Frank Fitzgerald III, 34, on a charge of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, 4 grams or more, but less than 200 grams. Fitzgerald’s bail was set at $30,000.

Darius Jonathan Corporal, 17, on a charge of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle. Corporal’s bail was set at $20,000.
