2 teens jailed on gun charges at Desert Sunrise

Police arrested two teens on gun charges at Desert Sunrise High School on Sep. 15, 2023.

Maricopa police arrested a pair of teens on gun and assault charges after a homecoming football game Friday evening.

At the end of Desert Sunrise High School’s first-ever homecoming game, cops say Kevin McIntosh, 18, punched someone in the face. He and Brandyn Lee, 18, allegedly ganged up on that person, according to a probable cause statement obtained by InMaricopa.

A group of “concerned adults” told police McIntosh pulled a gun from his pants and “waved it around in the air” before fleeing.

Someone alerted a school resource officer, yelling, “he has a gun!”

The officer found the alleged assailants in a car, where they say Lee resisted arrest. McIntosh fled and hid under a truck in the parking lot. He also resisted arrest, according to police.

Cops found a gun in the car underneath the driver’s seat. McIntosh and Lee allegedly said neither owned the gun, according to the probable cause statement.

Lee and McIntosh were arrested and booked into the Pinal County jail on felony charges of assault, aggravated assault, disruption of an educational institution, resisting arrest, weapons misconduct and disorderly conduct.

Lee is held on a $1,000 bond until his court date Friday.

For McIntosh, who was just arrested in April on charges of carrying firearms as a minor, court records were not immediately available.
