Student Detained for Bringing Airsoft Pellet Gun to Wilder Intermediate School in Schertz

At around 10:30 a.m. on Monday, May 20th, the administration at Wilder Intermediate School discovered that an 11-year-old student had brought what appeared to be a BB gun onto the campus. Upon inspection by the School Resource Officer (SRO) and school administration, it was determined that the item in question was actually an airsoft pellet gun designed to resemble a Glock firearm.

Further investigation revealed that the student had shared a picture of the gun via direct message on social media, suggesting it was a real firearm and indicating intent to use it during a fight. Consequently, the student was apprehended for Terroristic Threat, categorized as a Class B Misdemeanor, and transported to the Guadalupe County Juvenile Detention Center.

Chief of Police Jim Lowery emphasized the serious risks associated with the use of replica guns in such situations, highlighting the potential for tragic consequences. He commended those who alerted school authorities to the matter.

Collaboration between the Schertz Police Department and school administration will persist to uphold student safety. However, ensuring a secure school environment necessitates cooperation from students, parents, educators, the community, and law enforcement agencies.
