RALEIGH, N.C. — A student at Southeast Raleigh High School could be suspended if he is found guilty of using a stun gun on a classmate.

Eric Rogers, 17, has been charged with simple assault. According to police, Rogers used a stun gun on Sean Campbell in the school hallway.

Investigators believe it was a random attack and that Campbell and Rogers did not know each other.

Rogers was released to the custody of his aunt and uncle, who are his guardians. He faces a possible one-year suspension. His aunt says it was an accident.
