A Livingston ISD employee was arrested without incident Thursday for possession of a firearm at the district’s transportation facility. 

According to police reports, Russell David Hogue, 62, of Livingston was arrested around 2;30 p.m. for unlawful carrying a weapon in prohibited places.

The school district released a statement on the matter to parents and staff.

“Upon receipt of information related to this matter, LISD administrators and School Based Officers responded promptly,” the statement read. “After securing the firearm, police removed the employee from District property. To the District’s knowledge, the weapon was not displayed in a threatening manner. At this time, the information we have does not indicate the gun was brought to threaten or harm any LISD stakeholder. That said, possession of a weapon on school premises is prohibited by law. As a result of this violation, the arrested individual remains on administrative leave without access to District facilities, pending the outcome of the District’s investigation.”

The police investigation is ongoing, and a district spokesperson said it is cooperating fully with law enforcement.
