“A 12-year-old Colorado Springs seventh grader was suspended after he allegedly lifted a toy gun into view while moving it from one place to another during his virtual class.”
The teacher told the school principal about seeing the gun, and the principal, in turn, suspended Isaiah and called the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office.
Newsweek reports that Isaiah was suspended for five days over the incident.
The sheriff’s report on the incident indicates the art teacher “assumed it was a toy gun but was not certain.” The gun appears to have been an airsoft toy gun with black grips, which is used to shoot rubber BBs. The gun had a green slide that said, “Zombie Hunter”.
KDVR reported Isaiah’s mom, Dani, claimed the school did not notify her that the sheriff had been called until deputies were already on their way to the family’s home.
