A 12-year-old Mt. Healthy student was taken to the Juvenile Detention Center after he allegedly pointed a fake gun at students and was caught drinking wine while at school.
On Wednesday, officers confronted the child at the Achieve Program on Joseph St. after the assistant principal of Mt. Healthy Junior High School was made aware that a student had a firearm. Police found the firearm, which turned out to be fake, and also learned he was drinking wine from a cup.
An investigation says that the 12-year-old pointed the toy gun at two students after school and said "I am going to shoot you" to one of them, according to police.
The child was taken to the Juvenile Detention Center and charged with two counts of aggravated menacing, two counts of illegal possession of an object indistinguishable from a firearm in a safety zone and one count of consuming intoxicating liquor.
