On Tuesday, a Fairfield Police School Resource Officer (SRO) arrested a male student with a weapon on campus.
On Tuesday, October 25, 2022, at around 2:52 pm, Officer Lewis, a School Resource Officer assigned to Armijo High School, learned of an ongoing issue between two male students (both minors), in which one student threatened to physically harm the other. A school administrator escorted the student who made the threatening remarks to the main office and, based upon information that he was in possession of a firearm, a search of his backpack was conducted.
Inside the backpack, Officer Lewis found a second, cross-body bag from which he recovered a loaded Polymer 80 Glock-style pistol, with an extended magazine inserted into the magazine well. No other weapons were found.
The student was taken into custody and transported to the Solano County Juvenile Hall Detention Facility, where he was booked on several weapons related charges.
Many thanks to Officer Lewis, Armijo High’s vice principal and school administration. Due to their quick thinking and collaborative partnership, a potentially dangerous situation was avoided.
