Update: 3:06 p.m.

Frisco police identified the person suspected of being in possession of a gun on a school bus Wednesday as 17-year-old Gavin Frederick Golden of Frisco.

Around 9:14 a.m. Wednesday Frisco police officers were made aware of a report that a student from Lone Star High School was in possession of a gun on the school bus earlier that morning, according to a press release issued by the Frisco Police Department.

Lone Star High School went on lockdown while law enforcement investigated the possible threat. No one was allowed to enter or exit the school building at the time. The lockdown was later lifted.

The incident was resolved approximately an hour later when Frisco Police located and detained the student that matched the description given by witnesses at a business in the area of Eldorado and FM 423. 

The firearm was later recovered and was determined to be a BB gun that closely resembled a genuine firearm.

Golden was later arrested and charged with exhibition of a firearm, which is a third-degree felony under the Texas Education Code. A second student, who was with Golden at the time of the incident, was detained but later released as there was no evidence to support any involvement.

Social media reports that gun shots were fired and that students were injured are false, the release stated.  The preparation and partnership between Frisco ISD, Frisco Police, and the community directly led to the quick and safe resolution of this incident.

Frisco police remained on campus along with Frisco ISD security until the investigation was complete.

When a school goes into lockdown protocol, interior security features are used to protect staff and students. Individual classroom doors are secured, occupants remain silent/out of sight and lights are turned off. Barricading of doors or self-evacuation may occur.

Stafford Middle School, Phillips Elementary and Boals Elementary, which are located nearby, also operated on lockout, in which school business continues as usual, and once staff and students are brought in from outside, perimeter doors are secured.

Anyone with information regarding this offense is requested to contact the Frisco Police Department at 972-292-6010. They can also send an anonymous tip by texting FRISCOPD and the tip to 847411 (tip411) or by downloading the Frisco PD app available on Android and iOS devices.
