A Florida high school student was suspended after he disarmed another student who allegedly threatened to shoot someone while on a school bus.
An unnamed 16-year-old student from Cypress Lake High School in Fort Myers, Fla., was suspended for three days after he disarmed a 15-year-old peer who allegedly threatened to shoot another student with a loaded revolver during a Feb. 26 fight on a school bus, according WFTX.
“It’s dumb,” the suspended student told the station. “How they going to suspend me for doing the right thing?”
The teen, who reportedly took away the .22 caliber RG-14 revolver away from his armed peer, was allowed to return to class the next Monday, WFTX notes.
