Teens Arrested For Bringing Gun To School In Whitefish Bay

Police Say Snapchat Video Provided Evidence


Two teenagers have been arrested for bringing a gun to their high school in a northern Milwaukee suburb.

Whitefish Bay Police Chief Michael Young says a Snapchat video shows the two 15-year-old male students “clowning around” with the gun in a school bathroom Tuesday. Young says police later went to the Whitefish Bay home of one of the boys and found a loaded gun behind his bed.

The other teen was arrested at a house in Milwaukee.
