FAYETTEVILLE, NC (AP) — The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office says two men were arrested after a gun was found in their car on the campus of the high school where a 15-year-old girl was shot two days ago.
Spokeswoman Debbie Tanna says 19-year-old Canaan Wynder and 18-year-old Tristen Gibbs were arrested at Cape Fear High School on Wednesday. Both have been charged with felony possession of a firearm on school property.
Tanna says Wynder told deputies he was dropping his girlfriend off at the school. It wasn’t clear if the men have a lawyer yet.
Investigators haven’t said whether the arrests may be connected to the Monday shooting of Catilyn Abercrombie at the school. Two teenagers have been charged in that shooting.
Abercrombie remains in critical condition at a local hospital.
