Pullman high school student arrested for gun threat

From staff reports

A Pullman High School student was arrested and expelled Tuesday evening after threatening to bring a gun to school.

The 14-year-old student was arrested on charges of felony harassment after making threats on the bus heading home Tuesday afternoon.

Pullman Police Cmdr. Chris Tennant said Pullman police began receiving reports from parents that their students had overheard the teenager making threats to bring a gun to school on Wednesday.

Tennant said police looked into the threats and talked to witnesses to make sure the situation was not a misunderstanding. After talking to witnesses, the suspect, and his parents, police made the arrest.

Tennant said police confirmed the student did not have access to firearms but did possess a BB gun that looked and felt like a real pistol.

The student was transferred to Martin Hall Juvenile Detention Facility in Medical Lake, outside of Spokane.
