Police: North Penn Student Brings Pellet Gun to School

The 15-year-old student also had weed in his possession, police said.

A 15-year-old North Penn High School student allegedly brought an Airsoft pellet gun to school last week because, police said, he was going to a friend's house to shoot it after school. The student was also allegedly in possession of marijuana, police said.
On Dec. 4, at 2:08 p.m., Towamencin Township Police responded to the school for a report of a weapon on school property and drug possession, police said.
High school security told police that the student was in class when the teacher found his mannerisms suspicious, police said.
Believing the student was high, he was sent to the school nurse. School security was made aware of the situation and went to the nurse's office, police said.
The student allegedly had a black Airsoft brand pistol and marijuana in a plastic wrapper in his possession, police said.
Police said the pistol resembled a real gun from a distance, but the tip was painted orange.
The gun was loaded with several pellets, police said. The student allegedly told police that he had it on school property because he planned on shooting it at a friend's house after school, police said.
The student was released to a parent and later charged with possession of a weapon on school property and possession of marijuana in Montgomery County Juvenile Court, police said.
