Law enforcement officials from the Seguin PD and the Precinct 2 Constable's Office on the scene of the stop made near the intersection of King and College streets this morning.
(Seguin) - There may have been a time when you could bring your hunting rifle to school and leave in in the gun rack of your pickup. Those days, given the growing list of school shootings, are long gone.
The Seguin Police Department this morning arrested a student after receiving a call of a student in a campus parking lot with a rifle inside the vehicle. The student left the campus before police could arrive, but he was stopped by the Guadalupe County Precinct 2 Constable's Office, not far from the Mercer-Blumberg Learning Center. Seguin police officers took over the seen and found a total of two guns, and the student was taken into custody. The student has been identified as 18-year old Douglas Cowey, and it's not clear that there was any intent to cause harm at the school, but officials say the times have changed and these weapons are no longer allowed on any campus.
