SUNRISE, FLA. (WSVN) - Three students have all recently been arrested accused of bringing weapons to their Broward County schools.

Sunrise Police arrested a 15-year-old student at Piper High School Wednesday afternoon after investigators said he was carrying a pellet gun.

“I’ve just seen him getting arrested,” student Jordan Taneaus said. “Like, put in handcuffs and stuff.”

Students said he took off running outside the school, causing panic.

“I’m like, ungh, that’s crazy,” Taneaus said.

Another student from Hallandale Beach School was also accused of bringing a weapon to school, but according to police, it was a real gun instead of a pellet gun.

“I was like nervous, I guess everyone, like, started taking it seriously,” said a Hallandale Beach High student.

School administrators called in a code red after a school resource officer found a gun on 17-year-old Dwaynton Pulley. He was patted down after a fight at the school when the gun was found.

He may be charged as an adult.

“We were in the classroom for, like, a whole hour, so I, like, freaked out because there was, like, a kid with a gun in school,” said another Hallandale Beach High student.

Just as this story aired, 7News learned that there was a third student arrested for carrying a Smith and Wesson gun at South Broward High School Wednesday.

According to Hollywood Police, a 15-year-old boy armed himself with one of his father’s guns to retrieve another gun one of his friends allegedly stole after visiting his house.

A school resource officer found the loaded gun in the student’s backpack.

The student appeared in court with his father and attorney by his side.

His attorney told the judge the student took the gun to school with six rounds inside the magazine to scare another student. He added the teen knew it was a mistake and he was not at school trying to hurt anyone.

The judge ordered the teen to undergo 21 days of home detention.

The other two students will also have to face legal consequences.

“That’s all that matters, that everyone went home safe,” said a Hallandale Beach High student.

7News reached out to the South Broward High School teen’s father to find out how he was able to get his hands on the gun, but he refused to comment.

“They come to school to try and learn, and people come there to interrupt our education,” said student Justin Barret. “I feel like it’s very wrong, really.”
