Man charged after student found guns on school campus

Lexington, S.C. – A Lexington man is accused of having weapons on school property after guns were found Tuesday in a bag at Lexington High.

Brent Wilson Skinner, 48, is charged with carrying weapons on school grounds, according to an arrest warrant.

“Based on the information we gathered Tuesday, Skinner was exercising around the school campus during the early morning hours before students arrived,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “Two handguns were in a bag he left in a school parking lot after his workout.”

A student eventually noticed the bag and opened it to identify its owner, according to Koon.

“Once the student saw two guns were inside, he notified an administrator and our school resource officer became involved,” Koon said. “The student should be applauded for making the right decision. Because of his response, we worked with school administrators to keep everyone on campus safe.”

Skinner turned himself in Thursday morning. He’s being held in the Lexington County Detention Center while awaits a bond hearing.
