MHS Student Charged for Possession of Weapon

The Meridian Police Department has charged a 17-year-old high school student as an adult for having a gun on campus.

The charge of possession of a weapon by student against Kmondrae Daevon Curry was filed Thursday in connection with the Oct. 19 incident. Officials say a gun was found in his car.

Curry was processed and then released on $5000 bond. The MPD says no other arrest is expected. Two students were taken into custody Monday.

Police say the charge against Curry will be presented to the Lauderdale County grand jury in March.

Officials say a conviction on this charge could result in a fine up to $5,000 and/or up to three years in prison.

    I didn't miss the point, my point was made rather you took it as black /white issue. it was alot of stuff that was swept under the rug and it wasn't told . Some times if a teacher see a child headed the wrong way every lil bit help from the parent and a teacher if it is just a lil encouragement from a teacher that was my point . all jobs are hard that comes with the jobs that we all have. Life is not easy .

    first of all let me make some thing very clear,no he didn't buy the gun because he got it from a friend and second get it right he didn't even drive to school his friend pick him up from home. all parents don't have a 9to 5 job, and all of them don't just sit at home. Rather you are black or white you can all ways raise your child the way you wan't that child to be ,no matter how strict tou may be you can not sit and watch your child every step. Sometimes he could be the crowd that a person hang around not the parents. so PLEASE get it right i think that is wrong with society today, always having their head in somebody else door tryn to look in . so please stop and just Pray for a better world because it is not all black who is doing wrong. and by the way the gun was in the car not on the child.

    Loretta, this might be the law a 17 year old not being able to purchase a gun, but the fact is he had one, he drove the car to school or do you think it just got there by itself that day. Wake up, the fact is black or white, he had a gun in his car. Anyone can get a gun, if you have the money. Wake up!

    This is in response to "Don't Believe in Violence." You miss the point here. People probably did not make comments on the Kate Griffin incident, because racial statements were not made from the start. When Loretta made the first racial statement about the boys being white, she stirred up a hornets nest. I have to admit that other statements made later only added fuel to the fire, but it takes that first spark to get the fire burning. So if your goal is to see racial tension continue, go ahead and make the white/black comments. But if you want to see racial harmony, think about what you say before you say it. And one more thing. It is wrong to blame the teacher for not intervening. We are already asking these teachers to do too much. Their main job is to teach and not to be the child's parents.

    I feel that people should not hand down on a person if you really don't have a clue what happen.I feel that it was a black and white issue because when things happen in the county schools you hear about half of the story and not even there face. Just like the incident with the teacher at the High school why her face wasn't all on the news or her face,the incident at Kate Griffin where the child had 2 knives her face wasn't shown nor was there any comments made on that.And for that so call teacher who just need a pay check at the end of the month,if you was a concern teacher why didn't you try to reach out to help a child if tou see a child headed the wrong way and then come out later to say what was said shame on you!I think we have alot of parents and teachers who don't care about a child. I think all kids need one big mistake in there life and learn from it.Rather it is Black or White.

    When have a 17 year old ever been able to purchase a gun? I bet my life he wasnt the owner of the car or the gun. They alway trying to do something to make black people look bad.

    no, I didnt stick my feet in my mouth. I knew they would show his picture if it had to been someone black. They only hide the white people. You guys didnt get my point or you guys trying to play stupid.

    Where in this or previous stories was the child or his race identified? Hate and racism or really ugly emotions.
