Brownsville Middle School student disciplined for bringing pellet gun on campus

NORTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - A student was found with a pellet gun at Brownsville Middle School.

Miami-Dade Schools told 7News that a seventh-grader was found with a pellet gun at the school, Thursday.

According to a Miami-Dade Schools spokesperson, the pellet gun was not loaded and the student will be disciplined.

“The people just came and got him out of the class,” said sixth-grader Keondre Fluellen.

Officials said students were not in danger.

Parents are on edge after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, and they said they don’t know how a student could even bring a pellet gun on campus as backpacks have to be cleared.

Other parents expressed their frustration. They wondered if a student could bring a pellet gun on campus, they could bring a real gun as well.

“I feel sorry that they don’t have the school secured for the kids,” said mother Yolanda Fluellen.

“We cannot keep these things and kick these things under the rug,” said activist Tangela Sears. “Our kids mean something to us. We cannot have kids coming in school with guns, BB guns.”

Parents told 7News that the school did not alert them of the situation.
