Parents of Prescott student who brought gun will not be cited, Lincoln Police say
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – The parents of the 10-year-old boy who brought a gun to Prescott Elementary last week will not be cited, police say.
On Friday, Lincoln Police Capt. Todd Kocian said an investigation showed that the parents had properly locked the gun, using a cable gun lock.
The student had found the key to that lock before he brought the gun to school, Kocian told Channel 8.
Since the parents took measures to secure the firearm, Kocian said there was “insufficient probable cause” to cite the parents.
On Tuesday, Lancaster County Attorney Pat Condon said that due to the student’s age, he couldn’t be criminally prosecuted.
