Pitt County police have arrested another high school student charged with having a weapon on school property. It is the second arrest this week, after officers made a similar arrest Monday.
Gregory Barrett, 19, is a student at Farmville Central High School. He is in the Pitt County jail facing charges of assault, discharging a weapon on a motor vehicle and having a weapon on educational property.
Barrett's charges stem from an incident that occurred Friday on a school bus on the way home from school. Barrett cut himself while trying to open a window on the bus. Officials later found he was using a box cutter knife while on the bus.
Barrett was arrested in August for shooting a 28-year-old man in a parking lot near Farmville.
Earlier this week, arrested a student at North Pitt High School after a law enforcement officer found a loaded pellet gun in the student's bag.
