A 17-year-old Berkeley High student who was involved in an incident in which a gun was fired in a men’s bathroom on campus on March 22 was spotted on school grounds Monday, despite him having been expelled. BUSD spokesperson Mark Coplan said the student was seen at around midday by Berkeley High security staff who called the police to have him removed. By the time Berkeley police officers arrived on the scene, the student had disappeared.

The BUSD Board will be considering proposals to tackle guns on campus at its Wednesday night meeting at 7:30pm in the school board chambers at 2134 Martin Luther King Jr. Way.
