Baldwin County High School student arrested after bringing a BB gun to school

Baldwin County

BAY MINETTE, Ala. (WKRG) —  A student at Baldwin County High School is in custody after bringing a gun on campus and allegedly threatening at least two students.

A freshman at Baldwin County High School faces serious charges after bringing a gun on campus. At first glance, the BB gun looks real and the student allegedly threatened two students.

“He came up and ask me if I had a dollar.  I said no and he said your lying.”  15-year-old Mckenzie Amos was first to see the gun.  “He told me if I keep going he was going to put a bullet in me.”

Another student was allegedly approached with a similar threat.  “The other girl that he had threatened was in my first block and so we had left and went and told teachers,” says Amos.

Mckenzie’s Mom says she didn’t find out about the incident until well after school was over for the day but the principal told her, her daughter did everything right.  “He said Mckenzie and the other student handled it beautifully and kept everyone out of danger,” says Angela Amos.

The student, who we cannot identify because of his juvenile status, is charged with two counts of harassment and bringing a gun on campus.  “I hope the child that did this is not allowed back at the school especially if he is going to be triggered over a dollar to threaten to shoot someone.”
