When we hear the words “gun” and “school” together we start to cringe. This time it happened here. The good news is that it was found before any shooting took place.



Luckily someone called the police and alerted them of the gun’s presence on the campus at Washington-Marion High School. When school officials confronted a 16 year old student he threw a back pack to 17 year old Shaiquan Marshall. A handgun was found in the backpack.

CSPO officers later found out 17 year old Ray J Murray had given the backpack to the 16 year old earlier on campus.

A handgun was found in the backpack when it was searched. When questioned by deputies, both the 16 year old and Marshall denied ownership of the handgun.

According to the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office the 16 year old juvenile and Murray were arrested and charged with possession of a firearm on school property. Murray was booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center. The 16 year old juvenile was booked into the Juvenile Detention Center.
