#students | #parents | Grandmother armed with pistol attacked by parent outside Beecher school

MT. MORRIS TWP, MI – A grandmother armed with a concealed pistol was attacked by a parent Wednesday morning near the Head Start entrance of Dailey Elementary School, police said.

The altercation occurred around 9 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 16 in the parking area near the school building located off Neff Road in Mt. Morris Township.

Mt. Morris Township Police Chief Terence Green said there are conflicting reports on whether the grandmother’s weapon was drawn or if it fell from her waistband during the attack.

The grandparent claims the gun fell, while the school district’s post states weapons were drawn, he said. Authorities will soon review the security footage of the fight.

Beecher Community Schools Superintendent Marcus Davenport said in a letter to parents that school staff quickly notified police and administration. The building was immediately placed on lockdown.

The grandmother was arrested at the scene for being in possession of a concealed weapon on school grounds and being involved in an altercation, Green said.

Police are looking for the parent involved in the altercation.

The parent and grandparent were not related, Green said.

No students were involved in the incident.

The grandmother does have a concealed carry license, but weapons are not permitted on school grounds, Green said.

He noted the grandmother said she was aware of the rule but claims she forgot the pistol was in her waistband.

The attack was part of what “appears to be an ongoing feud between the group,” Green said.

“As adults, we all must be responsible and accountable for our actions near schools and mindful of any potential threats to student safety,” the letter from Davenport reads.

Davenport encouraged community members to inform the district of any potential threats near school property.

“We are extremely grateful that no one was injured and concerned citizens in our community intervened to deescalate the situation for the safety of our entire school community,” Davenport said.

The incident remains under investigation.

Parents please read important information that will be coming home today
