Update: BB gun pointed at students at Baker Middle School; no injuries reported

A BB gun was pointed at two middle school girls Wednesday at Baker Middle School, according to a Columbus Police Department report.

An officer was working school security at Baker Middle School at about 9:30 a.m. when he received a report from the main office of firearms found on campus. School officials told police that a 12-year-old girl and a 13-year-old had a gun pointed at them at about 9 a.m.

Valerie Fuller, director of communications for the Muscogee County School District, said a boy brought a BB gun into a sixth-grade classroom. While showing it around to some students, he pointed it at the two girls. At least two others handled the gun and were disciplined.

After it was reported to officials, police searched the boy’s locker, where they found another BB gun.

Fuller said the district is grateful nothing happened, but they are taking incidents seriously in case something dangerous occurs.

The boy responsible for bringing the BB guns to school was charged with pointing a gun or pistol at another.
