According to the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office, the defendant is charged with Going Armed with Intent, a felony, and Going Armed with a Knife longer than 8 inches, an aggravated misdemeanor. The student was stopped by school officials on September 23rd while trying to enter the school wearing a mask and carrying a knife.
