They went to Taco Bell to fight. Now teens face gun charges for meeting at school

Several teens face charges for their roles in carrying weapons on school property and other gun and drug-related incidents, police say.

Conway police spokesperson Selena Small released a detailed news release Monday with several incidents that happened March 6.

Students from Conway High School decided to meet at Taco Bell, 2300 Church St., to fight, the release stated. Three students, including Destin Dakota Causey and two juveniles, got into an altercation in the parking lot, Small said.

Causey and a juvenile girl left Taco Bell in a vehicle driven by Rebecca Minzer, 17, police said.

The three went to an "unknown location" and picked up a 15-year-old, the release said. The juvenile got into the car with a handgun and sawed-off shotgun, police say. The four then returned to the Taco Bell. They then picked up Christian Stull, 17, and the five drove onto Conway High's campus about 4:45 p.m., according to the release.

Causey and a juvenile girl were dropped off and Minzer, Stull and a juvenile left school property with the firearms, police said.

About 8 p.m., Minzer and a 15-year-old, who originally brought the firearms into the vehicle, met William Abe John Clemons, 19, at Sonic, 200 Rivertown Blvd., Small said. The 15-year-old and Jordan Aarron Brooks, 19, were "talking and handling" a sawed-off shotgun and rifle, police said, and moved the weapons between vehicles.
