    MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- A teenager who brought a gun to school planning to sell it accidentally fired the weapon in a classroom Wednesday, wounding another student in an arm, police said.

    Markees Smith, 15, was charged with aggravated assault, reckless endangerment and carrying a gun on school property. He was arrested by Memphis police and turned over to Juvenile Court authorities.

    The wounded student, who was not seriously injured, was treated at the Regional Medical Center at Memphis and sent home. The 16-year-old male was described by police as a friend of Smith's.

    The TV news story reported that the alleged shooter left school property and told his mother what had happened, and she took him back to school and turned him over to the police. The family had moved to Memphis in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

    (Memphis 10/24/2007) A student who was shot in the arm at Manassas High School Wednesday morning told our Andy Wise his friend is the person who shot him. Anthony Williams, a junior, walked into the school office and told a worker he'd been shot. Williams was treated at the MED and then released.

    Markees Smith is in custody at this time and is believed to also be a junior. Smith's mother told News Channel 3 the family is originally from New Orleans and her son has had a lot of emotional issues since he went through Hurricane Katrina. This morning, she also said she believes her son is capable of shooting someone due to his unstable condition. She asked for professional help for her son. The mother told us her son came home and told her she needed to take him back to the school because he was in trouble. Smith will have a hearing Thursday morning.

    Sam Moses, head of security for Memphis City Schools told us the shooting happened inside a classroom. Moses said metal detectors will be used to scan students until further notice. Metal detectors were not used this morning and are only used on a periodic basis.

    This is part of the reason that the FBI called Memphis #1 for violent crime.

    We're #1! We're #1! We're #1!

    Man brings gun to Memphis High School, confronts student

    george.brown@wreg.com

    (Memphis 10/24/2007) A man has been arrested for bringing a gun onto the campus of Fairley High School. Police say 20 year old Eddie Smith walked onto the campus and pulled a gun on a student.

    A Memphis City Schools representative told us the man, whose age is unknown, had been dating a student at Fairley until recently. The man tried to call the ex-girlfriend this morning and apparently the new boyfriend answered. We're told the man went to Fairley and was signing in at the office when he saw the new boyfriend, at which time he pulled his gun. The gun was not fired and no one was hurt.

    Police say Smith physically assaulted a school resource officer during a pat down, but was eventually taken into custody. The resource officer was treated and released from Methodist Hospital.

    Smith was charged with Carrying a weapon on school property, aggravated criminal trespass and resisting arrest.

    “From New Orleans and her son has had a lot of emotional issues since he went through Hurricane Katrina”. As usual if you are from New Orleans you have an excuse. It was the storms fault. I guess with the fires out in CA we will be hearing from people out there that because of the fires I robbed, shot, raped because of my emotional issues from the fire.
