Student with Airsoft Pistols Arrested
Spokane County Sheriff’s Office Deputies arrested a 14-year-old Mountain Side Middle School student for possessing air soft pistols at school.
This afternoon just prior to 3:30 p.m., Mead School District Officials received reports a student on a bus was in possession of a weapon and immediately notified School Resource Deputy Jeff Rogers.
Deputies and Washington State Patrol Troopers began responding to the location of the bus as additional information was received.
Deputy Rogers contacted the student, who had already gotten off the bus and was walking home. Two black airsoft pistols were located in the student’s backpack.
The student was arrested and booked into Spokane County Juvenile Detention for Possession of a Dangerous Weapon on School Facilities.
No students or staff were injured. This incident is still being investigated.
