Principal Charged For Not Reporting Gun In School

The principal of an eastern Carolina high school is charged after authorities say he failed to report finding a BB gun in school, to law enforcement officials.

Mattamuskeet High School principal Randolph Latimore is charged with a misdemeanor.

Authorities say he didn't report that an 18-year-old student brought that weapon to school in late September. The student is also charged.

State law requires schools to report when they find weapons on campus.
