Man Accused of Pointing Gun at Covington School Employee

A man was arrested Friday afternoon after a Covington school employee reported to police that the man pointed a gun at him.

Covington Police responded to Sixth District Elementary at 1901 Maryland Avenue just before 2 p.m. Friday. The school had been placed on lockdown after a report of a man waving a gun.

According to Covington Police, officers made contact with the man, later identified as Tyler Gregg, on school grounds and located a loaded semi-automatic handgun on the vehicle's dashboard.

The school employee told police that Gregg pointed the gun at him in a dispute over parking in the school lot.

That employee went back into the school, had the school placed on lockdown, and called police.

Police said there was no further incident involving the gun.

Gregg, 24, was arrested and taken to the Kenton County Detention Center where he faces charges of first degree wanton endangerment and unlawful possession of a weapon on school property.

He is being held without bond and is scheduled to be arraigned in Kenton District Court on Monday morning.
