A 16-year-old showed up at Eaglecrest High School on Friday morning armed with two knives and a BB gun, officials said. The boy, who had been expelled a year ago, had ridden an RTD bus with three students and showed them the BB gun. The students got off the bus at the high school and went into the cafeteria. The boy came in behind them.
The 16-year-old boy was detained in the school’s cafeteria almost immediately after he arrived on campus, district officials said.
“He didn’t get very far in the school, and he wasn’t wandering about,” said Tustin Amole, spokeswoman for the Cherry Creek School District.
The students notified school security at 7:30 a.m. that the teen was on campus and that he was seen “with what they perceived was a handgun in his waistband,” according to the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office.
The former student had two knives with 4-inch blades as well as the BB gun. He told deputies he had “a real gun at home,” the sheriff’s office said.
