Biloxi students caught playing with gun at bus stop

A Biloxi Middle School student and a Biloxi High School student were caught playing with a weapon at their bus stop today.

In an email sent to parents today, school administrators say they were alerted to the situation and searched the students.

One of the students was found in possession of an unloaded gun without a magazine or bullets.

Law enforcement officials are involved in this case and the school district will enact punishment in accordance with school policy.

Biloxi Public School Superintendent Marcus Boudreaux sent his thanks to students for coming forward with information relating to the incident, saying “I would like to thank those students that immediately came forward with this information and helped us take quick action in securing a safe environment. I would like to encourage students to always notify school personnel or a parent anytime they witness potentially dangerous behaviors or actions by others.”
