Report of student bringing toy gun into classroom probed

June 07, 2001

CALEXICO — Police here looked into a report that a student brought a gun into a classroom at Vincent Memorial High School on Tuesday.

Calexico police Sgt. Jim Neujahr said Wednesday officers found that a student did bring a gun to class but, "It was a toy gun."

Neujahr said he still considers the incident serious because if the student had threatened someone with the fake pistol, that student could have been charged with brandishing a weapon in a threatening manner, even if it was only a replica.

Vincent's principal could not be reached for comment Wednesday and did not return phone calls.
