Winston-Salem, NC -- A long-term substitute teacher at Philo-Hill Middle School was taken into custody Thursday morning after a School Resource Officer said they found a handgun on the passenger seat of a car parked on school property.
Winston-Salem police said the SRO went to the staff parking lot because of a vehicle alarm. The SRO reported that a handgun was in plain sight inside of the vehicle with the activated alarm.
George Frederick Hall II, 30, told investigators that he went to a shooting range the day before and accidentally left his .380 caliber handgun in the vehicle. Police said Hall was cooperative.
Hall was taken into custody and charged with Possession of a Weapon on a School Campus. He was released on a written promise; his court date is scheduled for June 6.
