CORAL GABLES, FLA. (WSVN) – A 13-year-old student is in custody after he was found with a BB gun at a Coral Springs middle school.
Coral Springs police arrived at Ramblewood Middle School Monday morning after receiving a tip that a student had a BB gun.
The school at 8505 W. Atlantic Blvd was placed on hold while police searched for the BB gun.
The school district said the student showed his friends a BB gun that appeared to be a Glock pistol in a 7-Eleven across the street from the school before the morning bell.
Another student who saw the BB gun thought it was a real gun and told the school administration, who quickly called the police.
After a brief search, police were able to locate the student and found the BB gun in his book bag.
The student was arrested and faces charges of one-time possession of a firearm on school property and disrupting the school day.
The principal sent the parents a statement regarding the incident, which read:
“Good Morning Raider Families, This message is to inform you that we went into a brief emergency lockdown this morning before the start of the school day. A Good Samaritan reported seeing someone in possession of a gun at a local off-campus grocery store. We immediately declared a lockdown and Coral Springs Police were on the scene.
