ALSO: Cobb County high school student brings weapon to school
Though classes have only been in session a few days in metro Atlanta, there have been several incidents involving violence and weapons on campus.
At Walton High School in east Cobb, student Ty William Holder, 17, walked into class drunk and carrying alcohol on Aug. 6, his arrest warrant states. Holder blew a .216 on an alcohol breath device, police said. He threatened to kill an assistant principal and kicked him so violently the administrator needed medical treatment.
Then Holder said he'd "get a gun and come back and kill everyone," the warrant says. The teen also kicked and spit on a police officer while threatening multiple times to kill them both, the warrant states. He was later arrested.
On Tuesday, a weapon spotted at DeKalb County’s Stephenson High School prompted an evacuation while officers searched the school. A juvenile was later arrested in connection with the incident.
And Friday morning, Wheeler High School in Marietta was temporary on lockdown after a student brought a weapon to campus and made threats, according to a school district spokesperson. The student, whose name was not immediately released, was arrested.
