The suspects accused one another of grabbing the gun after the attempted sale. Others admitted to carrying it around school, from the parking lot to a book bag during practice.

Deputies said a student tipped off the principal to the gun's previous presence on campus, but the student ended up being a suspect in the investigation.


Deputies arrested the four following students: Tyler Williams, Davion Bigby, and Thomas Riley, all three age 18, as well as Jordan Grey, 19. All face charges of carrying weapons onto school safety zones.

Bigby's girlfriend, Miesha Bass, 20, was arrested for tossing the gun into the woods and tampering with evidence.


Salem High School officials sent a letter home to parents with the following message:

"Please talk with your children about the seriousness of bringing anything inappropriate on campus. Equally important is that students talk with an adult in the building when they see something inappropriate brought on campus."
