The student was escorted to the principal’s office, is accused of making more threats and declined a search of his fanny pack. When police arrived the scene, the student was leaving the building and heading for his mother’s SUV.
Police said the student got inside the SUV and police officers knocked on the windows, asking the student and the mother to go inside. When police searched the fanny pack they discovered a loaded pistol with the serial number scratched off.
The video shows that his mother was furious and she asked him if he realized she could be arrested for what he did.
Police are investigating and looking into where the student got the firearm.
