Coconut Creek high school student arrested, accused of carrying guns to school – CBS Miami
MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Coconut Creek High School was blocked in red code on Friday following a report of a gun on campus.
Coconut Creek Police said they arrested a 16-year-old student for “carrying a gun on campus”.
Police said: “He is accused of possessing a gun in the schoolyard, defacing his serial number and disrupting a school function. Nobody was injured in the accident. “
The students were released in groups at the reunification places across the street.
The school is located in the 1400 block of NW 44th Avenue.
CBS4 got the cellphone video inside the classrooms while the lockdown was in progress, showing most of the lights off.
Students tell us they have waited a long time to be fired.
“I am feeling a little nervous and anxious, this is not the first time that Coconut Creek has had a lot of problems, so I am very worried and I do not think my son will return to this school,” said Natalie Etienne, parent.
“I’ll pick him up at 12:30. I wait in line, so I was here before it all happened, “says Tiffany Hood, a parent from the reunification area.” I was scared because they didn’t tell us anything and we wanted to go out for an hour, it was 1:45 when it’s the policeman came and said we had to come here. “
“It’s very disappointing and very worrying for the age we live in right now,” said Eienne.
