Sixteen Year-Old FL Student Suspended For Disarming Gunman & Saving Students

A sixteen year-old Florida student was suspended this week after disarming a gunmen on a school bus and saving fellow students.
It was against school rules.

The Blaze reported:

A Florida high school student wrestled a loaded gun away from another teen on the bus ride home this week and was slapped with a suspension in return.

The 16-year-old Cypress Lake High student in Fort Myers, Fla. told WFTX-TV there was â??no doubtâ?ť he saved a life after grappling for the loaded .22 caliber revolver being aimed point-blank at another student on Tuesday.

â??I think he was really going to shoot him right then and there,â?ť said the suspended student, not identified by WFTX because of safety concerns. â??Not taking no pity.â?ť

The student said the suspect, a football player, threatened to shoot a teammate because he had been arguing with his friend.

Authorities confirmed to WFTX the weapon was indeed loaded, and the arrest report stated the suspect, identified by WVZN-TV as Quadryle Davis, was â??pointing the gun directlyâ?ť at the other student and â??threatening to shoot him.â?ť

Thatâ??s when, the teen told the station, he and two others tackled the suspect and wrestled the gun away. The next day, all three were suspended.

â??How they going to suspend me for doing the right thing?â?ť he asked.

The schoolâ??s referral slip said he was given an â??emergency suspensionâ?ť for being involved in an â??incidentâ?ť with a weapon.

The Blaze reported:

A Florida high school student wrestled a loaded gun away from another teen on the bus ride home this week and was slapped with a suspension in return.

The 16-year-old Cypress Lake High student in Fort Myers, Fla. told WFTX-TV there was “no doubt” he saved a life after grappling for the loaded .22 caliber revolver being aimed point-blank at another student on Tuesday.

“I think he was really going to shoot him right then and there,” said the suspended student, not identified by WFTX because of safety concerns. “Not taking no pity.”

The student said the suspect, a football player, threatened to shoot a teammate because he had been arguing with his friend.

Authorities confirmed to WFTX the weapon was indeed loaded, and the arrest report stated the suspect, identified by WVZN-TV as Quadryle Davis, was “pointing the gun directly” at the other student and “threatening to shoot him.”

That’s when, the teen told the station, he and two others tackled the suspect and wrestled the gun away. The next day, all three were suspended.

“How they going to suspend me for doing the right thing?” he asked.

The school’s referral slip said he was given an “emergency suspension” for being involved in an “incident” with a weapon.
