Teen with BB gun rifle prompts lock-out of all Martin County Schools
The Martin County Sheriff’s Office has identified the 13 year old male who jumped the fence at Hope Rural School with what looks like a rifle, but tuned out to be a BB Gun. Detectives are speaking to him at the time of this writing. He has been positively identified and admitted to being the suspect in question. The 13-year old is the grandson of the groundskeeper at the school. The BB gun was used for killing rodents. The 13-year old was retrieving the BB gun for his grandfather. There is no longer an active threat. Thank you to the teacher who called this in.
