The husband of a teacher at a Moore elementary school is charged with one count of possession of a weapon on school property. A warrant for his arrest also has been issued.
Police say Mark Thomas Brim left a loaded gun inside Plaza Towers Elementary School located at 852 S.W. 11th Street on Monday, October 8. A teacher at the school found the gun inside a classroom. The school was immediately placed on lockdown.
Police say the gun was a loaded .380 caliber Smith & Wesson. Brim told police the gun fell out of his back pocket over the weekend when he was helping his wife with a computer problem at the school. Brim's wife is a teacher at Plaza Towers.
Brim said he left the gun by accident and never intentionally meant to bring it into the school, according to court documents. He said he had put the gun in his pocket to place in his bedroom before guests arrived at his home. He told police he then went to the school and forgot the gun was in his pocket. He said he didn't realize the gun was missing until his wife called him on Monday and told him about the lockdown at the school.
Brim positively identified his gun to police. Police say Brim also has an expired conceal carry license.
