A San Diego middle school teacher was arrested on Monday for having brought a gun and a knife to school. Ned Walker, who teaches seventh and eighth grade English at Farb Middle School in Tierrasanta, was arrested in the school’s parking lot according to San Diego’s NBC 7 News report on Feb. 12, 2013.
The Farb Middle School teacher was arrested after interim principal Courtney Rizzo had overheard conversations that a teacher had brought a gun to school. She immediately called the police who were also investigating on Monday an alleged shooting plot at a Poway middle school campus.
After his arrest for carrying a gun and a knife to school, the 41-year-old Farb Middle School teacher was booked into San Diego Central Jail. Ned Walker is facing “a felony charge of possession of a firearm on school property” and the “possession of a knife with a locking blade.”
San Diego’s police officers are still investigating for how long the English teacher had been carrying a gun on school grounds. Ned Walker has been with the San Diego Unified School District since November 2003.
Most students and parents at Farb Middle School were not aware of the fact that a teacher had been arrested for bringing a gun and a knife to school. According to interim principal Courtney Rizzo, there is not much information that can be made public since this is an ongoing investigation.
