Everyone is on high alert right now concerning guns in school and this just goes to show how easily something can happen.

At East Valley Middle School a bit of panic ensued when they started receiving reports of a student with a gun yesterday.

According to KTVB, it was just a BB gun, but guns have no place in school and its concerning that a kid could walk into any school with a gun of any kind.

Luckily, in this instance it appears there was no motive to try and hurt people, the student was very cooperative, but who knows why he brought the BB gun to school?!

The real positive in this instance is that when someone saw something they said something immediately. It's a good reminder that you should always report something that seems out of place or suspicious. Strange behavior, any weapons, or bullying at school should be reported to authorities.
