The Washington County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that three male students from Daniel Boone High School have been charged after a school resource officer found them in the school parking lot shooting off fireworks.

According to WCSO Sgt. John Rupe, the SRO at Daniel Boone High School reportedly heard what she thought were gunshots coming from the school parking lot around 7:30 a.m. Wednesday. Upon further investigation, three males -- two juveniles and one adult -- were found in the lower parking lot in front of the school setting off fireworks.

Rupe said the adult student, Thomas Parrish, 18, was taken to the Washington County Detention Center and the two juveniles were taken to the juvenile detention center, where they have since been released into the custody of their parents.

The three students have all been charged with disorderly conduct and possession of weapon on school property, due to the explosive nature of the fireworks.

According to Rupe, Parrish was reportedly being held in the detention center on $1,000 bond.

No court date information is available at this time.
