The incident started at lunchtime when a group of high schoolers got into a scuffle. That’s when the 17-year-old allegedly pulled out a loaded firearm and pointed it at the others involved. Luckily, an officer managed to secure the weapon.
Stockton Police took the student into custody, charging him with resisting arrest, alleged battery, making criminal threats, and other weapons violations. Authorities are holding him at San Joaquin Juvenile Hall as they continue investigating the incident.
Reports show two students involved in the fight sustained minor injuries, but no one discharged their weapon, making this takedown a success. There is no word on what started the argument or if the school is disciplining any students.
