HCHS senior arrested, misses graduation after bringing firearm to grad practice
BONIFAY One member of the Holmes County High School Class of 2021 missed graduation Tuesday, May 25, after being arrested for bringing a firearm with him to graduation practice earlier that day.
According to a Holmes County Sheriffs Office report, 18-year-old Caleb Michael Sherrouse was observed with a gun tucked into the waistband of his pants while at the practice, which was held on school property.
Law enforcement and school officials then subsequently received a video which showed what appeared to be Sherrouse loading a magazine into the firearm.
According to the report, Sherrouse told law enforcement officers that he was planning to go fishing later and had forgotten to remove the pistol before attending practice. The report notes that another student claimed Sherrouse had previously made a statement that he was going to shoot up graduation; however, HCSO stresses that information had not been verified at the time of the report, rather merely noted.
Sherrouse was arrested and is charged with possessing a firearm on school property.
