Mill Creek Student Facing Weapons Charge

An 18-year-old female was arrested after being found in possession of a knife on campus.

UPDATED May 16 at 2:10 p.m.

A Buford teen is facing weapon charges after a May 11 incident at Mill Creek High School.

Shamtellt Suzie Lopez, an 18-year-old freshman, was charged with carrying a concealed weapon and carrying a deadly weapon at a public gathering after school officials discovered she had brought a knife to school.

According to Jorge Quintana, director of media relations for Gwinnett County Public Schools, Lopez did not take the knife out and did not attempt to use it, but did show it.

Lopez was released Friday on a $3,700 bond.

The mug shot breaks my heart. This child is obviously looking for attention. God bless her.

What's really sad is that this 18 year old is still a freshman...and also, the way her eyebrows are shaved is indicitive of being in a gang..that is very scary.

18 yr old freshman? I didn't know that was possible. At least she is trying to stay in school, well probably not now. Pretty sad really. I blame the parents...or maybe Bush...no LeBron!

I do not know if she is a freshman. That was not indicated in the report from GCPS. I will try to find out.

Jorge Quintana with GCPS just confirmed the student is a freshman.

I'm really disappointed we didn't give her social promotions. What happened to No Child Left Behind?

Incredibly sad ... :'(. Lord help our young people make good choices regardless to their environment and let them know Your love and purpose for their life.

FINALLY someone is listening and paying attention, even if it is strangers. Just like in the movie FOEST GUMP, I wonder if having Forest mother would have changed this child's life. I believe that Jenny life would have turned out differently if Mrs Gump had been her parent. There is so much more to this story, so much more.

This student is one of our "regulars" in the media center. She was always very polite to us. She checked out many books and liked graphic novels and cartoon characters, as she would print these out on our printers. She is definitely NOT in a gang! Her looks changed daily with her drawing different designs around her eyes and changing her makeup and haircolor. I think, like others, this is her way of expressing herself. Many of the students that pass through high schools are always changing their looks. This one happened to be not one of her better ones.

Refer to Dawn Siska's post - then read it over again & again.

She is a freshman and her looks describe that she looks like she is in a gang. And she does not deserbe to be here at Mill Creek High School. This school is for people that want to learn and it is a very good environment..

Everyone out their judging me. Non of you dont k me. Why judge my piix if don't k me. Yea I look weird on this pix. At least I stay in school n deal w racist , religious freaks that are against mine. I'm not those kind of stupid ppl drop out for no reason tht is like " oh I'm dropping out cuz I wanna hangout w losers. Or I'm dropping out cuz I didn't learn how to have safe sex behind the school " .n I'm not a gang bitches, I'm cyber goth. I only look weird cuz everything I had on was forced to be taken off. I spend most of my time learning on book bk when I was in Tht school. The only ppl Tht k me is my teachers n the librarian's . You look at this pix n say I look like freak, dumb or monster. If you wanna see a monster. Tht Cheyenne cherry. Tht a monster
