Principal, Teacher Thwart Planned Shooting of 2 Campus Security Officers

The principal and a teacher from Jan Mann Opportunity School patted down a student who was behaving suspiciously and discovered a gun.

A student’s plan to shoot and kill two unarmed school security officers was thwarted Dec. 10 when the principal and a teacher of the school in Northwest Miami-Dade County patted the student down and discovered a weapon.

Jalen Leon Bradley, 18, was arrested on charges of bringing a loaded gun to school, battery on a police officer and attempted murder. He confessed to police that he planned to shoot two school security officers whom he “hates,” the Miami Herald reports. 

Principal Samuel L. Johnson and teacher Eddie Lafaille of Jan Mann Opportunity School said they stopped Bradley outside a school bathroom because he was behaving suspiciously.

Bradley told police he stole the weapon from a woman in a Winn-Dixie parking lot over the weekend.
