Blotter: East Rowan High student cited for bringing hunting knife to school

SALISBURY — An East Rowan High School student was cited for bringing a knife to school, the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office said Thursday.

Authorities said 16-year-old Chandler Austin King had a hunting knife in his backpack while at school. He was disciplined by the school and issued a citation for misdemeanor possession of a weapon on campus.

King, of the 100 block of Josie Street in Rockwell, was cited Thursday.

In November, King and his brother, Matthew Tyler King, 17, were accused of stealing a firearm from a Salisbury home.

King is expected in court in April on felony larceny and breaking and entering charges.
