Gun Found on Hillside HS Campus

Durham, N.C. – This morning, Durham County Deputies responded to Hillside High School after receiving a tip about a student in possession of a gun on campus. It was discovered that in his vehicle, Dreldon Charle Majette, 19 was in possession of a Kel-tec 9mm long rifle with a high capacity magazine. As a result, Majette was charged with misdemeanor carrying a concealed weapon and having a gun on school property, which is a felony. He was booked into the Durham County Detention Center and released on a $15,000 unsecured bond.  
 
Majette did not make any direct threats against the school, students or staff and did not present the weapon in a threatening manner while at the school. However, bringing any weapon onto a school’s campus is a serious matter and was investigated as such. We are grateful that this was brought to our attention, and the investigation was concluded without incident.  
 
Anyone who has further information on this investigation is asked to call the Durham County Sheriff’s Office at 919-560-0897.
