BYRON, Minn. – A 17-year-old boy allegedly pointed a toy gun at students from his car window while driving out of the parking lot Friday at Byron High School.
Authorities say the boy is facing a charge for possession a replica firearm on school property.
The Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office says the school district was made aware of the situation after students reported it around 3 p.m.
The suspect, who authorities say admitted to it, said he didn’t think people would be so sensitive about a toy gun.
He was released to his parents.
