Teen Brings Gun, 50 Rounds of Ammo to School
FRESNO, Calif. – Police arrested a 14-year-old Central High School student on Thursday for bringing a .25-caliber semi-automatic handgun and 50 rounds of ammunition to campus.
Authorities say the ninth grader was carrying the weapon and bullets in his pockets, reports the Fresno Bee. The arrest occurred about a day after rumors spread on Facebook that someone planned to “shoot the place up.” The news source says there is no evidence linking the student and the rumor.
Earlier this week, other threats were made via text message against another high school in the area.
