A teen who was on GPS monitoring for prior juvenile arrests was taken into custody on Monday morning at Howard School with a handgun in his locker.
 
Desmond Orando McKevie, who just turned 18 last month, is charged with aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, vandalism, possessing a firearm with the intent to go armed, and carrying weapons on school property
 
At 10 a.m., members of the Chattanooga Police Department's Gun Team responded to the high school at 2500 Market St. to locate McKevie. Police said he had warrants on file for a firearms-related incident that happened over the weekend.
 
Chattanooga Police contacted the Probation/Parole office who confirmed that McKevie was on GPS monitoring.
GPS tracked McKevie to inside Howard High.
 
Officers made contact with the School Resource Officer (SRO) at Howard High prior to their arrival and alerted him that McKevie had active warrants. The SRO located McKevie and placed him in custody for the warrants.
 
Prior to police arriving, McKevie advised the SRO that he had a firearm in his backpack inside of his school locker. The gun was located, secured, and turned over to police who checked it into the Chattanooga Police property room.
 
McKevie was taken into custody and transported to the Hamilton County Jail without incident.
