The Onslow County Sheriff’s Office says an 18-year-old Dixon High School student is charged with numerous offenses, including six counts of assault on a school employee.
Deputies arrested 18-year-old Durvell Walker of Maple Hill Thursday and charged him with carrying a concealed weapon, possession of a weapon on school property, assault on a government official, six counts of assault on a school employee and resisting obstruction and delay of a law enforcement officer.
Major Chris Thomas says Dixon High School had suspicions that Walker was carrying a weapon as he arrived to school Thursday.
Principal Steven Clarke gestured Walker to the side to search for the weapon – but couldn’t find anything.
He says Clarke then moved Walker into the room closest to them that happened to be a weight room.
Clarke checked Walker’s book bag and Thomas says that’s when Walker rushed the principal and the SRO had to get involved.
Thomas says Walker did swing a weight rack at the principal and five other employees and hit each one but none required medical attention.
