Wednesday, police arrested a Lubbock ISD parent for bringing a gun on the Murfee Elementary campus, at the corner of Joliet and Lynnhaven Dr. 

School officials reported just before 1:00 p.m., they saw a man take a gun from the trunk of his car and put it in his pants. Police report that the suspect was involved in a child-custody dispute.

The principal, who was outside the school, saw the man and called the LISD Police.

Officials arrested Lucas Matthew Vela, 24, a few blocks from the school and charged him with carrying a weapon where prohibited, aggravated assault, terroristic threat and violation of a protective order.

The incident occurred nearly an hour after students had left school early for a Staff Development Day.
