Huntsville Police have arrested the step-father of the Blossomwood Elementary student who brought a gun to school that accidentally discharged and shot another student in the hand.
The investigation into the shooting led HPD to obtain evidence about the gun, which was originally possessed by Letroy Cole Jr. He was arrested on two charges for unlawfully possessing a stolen firearm as a convicted felon and is currently being held in the Madison County Metro Jail on a $15,000 bond.
