AK-47 style pistol found in North Texas student’s car outside school


RICHARDSON, Texas (KWTX) Police in North Texas arrested a student after an AK-47 style pistol was allegedly found in the teen’s car in the school parking lot.

Shortly after 11 a.m. on May 25, 2022, the Richardson Police Department received a phone call from a business in the 1500 block of East Spring Valley Road reporting a man holding what appeared to be a rifle.

Police were told the man was last seen walking towards Berkner High School, located at 1600 East Spring Valley Road.

Numerous police officers immediately to the school and initiated a search and investigation. Nearby schools were immediately notified and placed on lockdown.

Police officers and administrators with the Richardson Independent School District quickly identified the male suspect as a juvenile student at Berkner High School.

The student was located inside the school, but no weapons were found. A search of the student’s car in the parking lot, however, led to the discovery of an AK-47 style pistol and a replica AR-15 style Orbeez rifle.

The student was arrested and charged with unlawful carrying of a weapon in a gun-free school zone, a State Jail Felony.

Police did not identify the student.

“The Richardson Police Department would like to remind the public of the importance to report suspicious activity, as we recognize the vigilant awareness and actions of the person who initially called 911 to alert law enforcement,” the department said.

  1. You know how many kids had shot guns and rifles in the back window of their pickup trucks when i was growing up? A lot of them and never an incident. I have been trying to figure out what changed from my youth until now. Is it the daily violence on the tell a vision? The violent lyrics we listen to in song or the daily exposure to violent video games? Can you blame it on bullying? I think very little of of those things play a part in these kids shooting up their schools. The only common denominator i can come up with and make a guess on, is that most of these shootings take place in the cities, i would like to blame it on people just being miserable living in these cities but that doesn’t really make much sense either, cities have been around forever, so what’s changed? I do believe 2 household income pays a small part in it but i would bet the biggest factor that attributes to these kids mental states are the drugs the big pharma keeps pushing. The war on drugs against the people is really just another form of tax. Big pharma is the root of the problem in my opinion.
