KAKE’S MADELINE ANDERSON… JOINS US LIVE IN GODDARD NOW WITH DESPITE THESE SIGNS ON EVERY DOOR HERE AT GODDARD HIGH SCHOOL, A FORMER STUDENT CAME INSIDE THE BUILDING TODAY, CONCEALING A SEMI AUTOMATIC HANDGUN. AROUND 12:15, TWO MALES SHOWED UP AT THE FRONT ENTRANCE OF THE HIGH SCHOOL. STAFF LET THEM INSIDE BECAUSE ONE WAS RECOGNIZED AS A FORMER GODDARD STUDENT. THE TWO WERE THEN TAKEN TO THE FRONT OFFICE. “They were asking to see a current student because apparently he had some property that belonged to them. And it’s not custom to allow students to have visitors throughout the school day unless it’s a parent. So we continued to question to find out their motive for being here.” IT WAS DURING THAT QUESTIONING THAT A SCHOOL POLICE OFFICER FOUND THE GUN ON 20 YEAR OLD DEAN FARMER. FARMER WAS IMMEDIATELY TAKEN INTO CUSTODY AND BOOKED IN THE SEDGWICK CO JAIL. THE OTHER PERSON WHO’S AGE AND IDENTITY WE DON’T KNOW WAS NOT ARRESTED.
