BROWARD COUNTY, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A 14-year-old male is facing multiple charges after allegedly bringing a gun to school.
Sheriff Gregory Tony issued the following statement:
“The incident Friday morning at Boyd Anderson High School is a prime example of the importance of ‘see something, say something.’ A Lauderdale Lakes Middle School student, who was suspended, snuck into Boyd Anderson High School and showed off a loaded weapon. Fortunately, a witness alerted the school resource officer to a student with a gun in a classroom. The SRO – a Broward Sheriff’s Office deputy — immediately took action, removed the student from the class, confiscated the loaded weapon and placed the student into custody.
Once alerted, BSO’s Real-Time Crime Center (RTCC) in the Threat Management Division monitored the situation as it unfolded and coordinated with the SRO on campus to help effect this safe outcome. After the student was taken into custody, the RTCC viewed video of the accused student’s actions prior to the incident and determined that there were no other known threats to the campus.
The tip from the witness and the deputy’s quick response averted what could have been an extremely dangerous and potentially violent incident. The men and women of this agency have worked hard to reinforce to our community the importance of seeing something and saying something. I commend the person who had the courage to speak up and the deputy who responded without hesitation to confront this possible threat.”
