Wichita teacher facing handgun charge


WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – A Wichita school district official says an elementary teacher charged with carrying a concealed handgun on school premises doesn’t work for the district anymore.

Wichita school district spokeswoman Susan Arensman told The Wichita Eagle  in a text message Thursday that 31-year-old Daniel C. Nagel “is no longer an employee” of the district. She would not say if Nagel was fired or when his employment ended.

Nagel was arrested May 20 at an elementary school on suspicion of carrying a concealed gun on school property. He’s scheduled for his first appearance in Municipal Court on Monday.

Nagel’s lawyer, Nicholas Means, says Nagel has a state-issued concealed-carry permit.

State law prevents anyone other than law enforcement officers from carrying a gun into a school that has an obvious sign banning guns.
