High School Student Tackled by Classmates After He Brandishes Handgun: Police
The student with the gun was arrested and faces firearm charges, police said.
A 14-year-old high school freshman was thrown to the ground by classmates after he pulled out a .22-caliber handgun, police said.
The unidentified student brandished a derringer during metal shop class at La Habra High School in Orange County, California, police Sgt. Jose Rocha told InsideEdition.com Wednesday.
"He got it from home," Rocha said.
The boy was knocked to the ground by fellow students who saw him holding the weapon, police said. The teen was not making verbal threats, Rocha said, and appeared to be "displaying it." The gun was not loaded.
The campus was briefly placed on lock down while La Habra police investigated.
No one was hurt during the incident.
The student was arrested and transported to juvenile hall, Rocha said. He was arrested on charges of firearm possession, possession of a concealed firearm and minor in possession of a concealable weapon, Rocha said.
He has not yet entered a plea, and is scheduled to appear in juvenile court on Friday, Rocha said.
