Mission chief’s stolen gun fired at McAllen school

McALLEN, Texas (AP) — A South Texas police chief says his stolen gun has been identified as the weapon used by a student who allegedly fired a shot outside a school.

Nobody was injured in the Sept. 1 incident outside James “Nikki” Rowe High School in McAllen during a confrontation with another student.

Mission police Chief Leo Longoria confirmed Wednesday that the handgun allegedly fired by the 16-year-old boy, who remains in juvenile custody, was reported stolen Aug. 4 from his city-owned undercover vehicle.

Investigators are trying to determine how the gun ended up with the youth. Serial numbers from the Mission Police Department-issued gun helped identify the weapon.

Longoria says he’s relieved and thankful that his weapon was recovered and nobody was hurt.
