News headline from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department:
A teenage boy was caught on his high school campus in Temecula on Friday after showing off a handgun to his friends that he brought from home without permission.
Shortly before noon on April 20th, a Campus Supervisor contacted the Temecula Valley High School’s resource officer, telling him there was a student on the campus that was possibly in possession of a firearm and was showing it off to other students.
The 16-year-old student, who attends the school, was located on school grounds and was quickly detained. Officers found an unloaded .22 caliber handgun in his waistband and ammunition in one of his pockets. The student said he brought the gun to the school to show to his friends.
No one was injured in this incident.
Officers went to the student’s home in Wildomar, and conducted a search for additional weapons. The weapon was found to be registered to his stepfather and was taken by the student from his house without permission.
Riverside County Child Protective Services was notified and the student was later booked into Southwest Juvenile Hall for possession of a firearm on school grounds.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, Southwest Station, at 951-696-3000.
