Leesburg -- Two Lee County teenagers face felony gun charges for having a loaded pistol at the Lee County-Westover High school football game on August 31st. Arrest warrants were issued today for 17-year-old Richard Michael Silvas, and a 15-year-old juvenile boy, charged with carrying a gun on school property and two other weapons charges.
Investigators say Silvas brought a .25 caliber pistol to the high school football stadium that Friday night, and was showing it to students on the visitors side of the stadium.
Students told a School Assistant Principal , and Police confronted Silvas.
"By the time the Officers got over there, the kid had dumped it in a trash can on the home side. They went back over to get it, and that's when they found the clip to the pistol laying on the ground," said Leesburg PoliceChief Charles Moore.
The juvenile showed Police Officers a spot on Starkesville Road about a quarter mile from the football stadium, where they threw the gun away. The gun has been recovered.
Chief Moore said Silvas has been expelled from school, and his mother has said she will turn him in to Officers today. The juvenile will face a school tribunal hearing and Juvenile Judge.
Chief Moore issued a warning to other students about how serious they will be punished for taking a gun onto school property.
