The Osage County District Attorney’s Office is considering charges in an incident in which several firearms were found in a student’s vehicle at the Pawhuska High School.

According to Pawhuska Police Department Sgt. Rex Wikel, the incident happened on Nov. 30.

“Our officers and the Osage County Sheriff’s Office K-9 unit were doing a routine narcotics sweep at the parking lot of the high school and one of the officers saw one of the rifles,” Wikel said. “There were five total found, three hunting rifles and two shotguns.”

He said the student was located, and told authorities that he had been hunting and had forgotten to take the weapons out of his vehicle.

“The matter is now up to the district attorney to decide if charges need to be filed,” he said.
