San Diego teacher arrested on suspicion of taking gun to school

An English teacher at a middle school in San Diego has been arrested on suspicion of taking a gun and lock-blade knife to campus, authorities said Tuesday.

Ned Carter Walker, 41, was arrested Monday in the parking lot as he arrived at Farb Middle School in the Tierrasanta neighborhood.

He was booked into San Diego County jail on two felony counts of possessing a lethal weapon at school.

School police had been tipped that Walker kept weapons in his classroom. The semi-automatic gun was registered to Walker, officials said.

Police found the weapons on Walker, along with a clip of seven rounds, officials said. He offered no resistance, they said.
