ONTARIO (CBSLA) — Classes will resume Thursday at De Anza Middle School in Ontario after a 13-year-old boy was arrested for running through the campus wearing a mask from the movie “Scream” and allegedly pointing a gun at a teacher.

Police were called to the school, 1450 S. Sultana Ave., at about 1 p.m. Wednesday on the report of an armed suspect running through the field.

The caller reported that the boy wearing the Halloween costume had run through the school campus carrying a handgun and that he also pointed the handgun at a teacher who was in a class with students.

The suspect later hopped a fence between two adjacent schools and ran away into the backyard of a house that backed up to the school.

Both De Anza and adjacent Linda Vista Elementary School were put on lockdown while officers searched for the suspect. The expanding search led to the lockdown of another school, Ontario Christian Elementary.

The teen was later found walking less than a mile away, in the area of Campus Avenue and Mission Boulevard, and arrested. Police say they found a handgun and the costume in his backpack.

No injuries were reported. The district says they are adding extra security to the campus as a precaution.

    It’s a good thing California has such restrictive gun laws, otherwise………..



    Never mind.

  2. And the state passed a law forbidding teachers who had legitimate concealed and carry permits from carrying their weapons onto campus. If I was a teacher and had a permit I might have blown him away like a cop would do if a weapon is pointed at them.

    Wonder what color he was, he was wearing a hoodie.

  4. Darren Davis says:

    What kind of “handgun”? Do your reporters know how to say “who, what, when, where”?

  5. Cholos and hoodies are our dieversity! Hopefully moonbeam will get to meet them, personally.

    Anybody who sends their children to a public school in 2017 is completely nuts.

    And his Momma say that he be a good boy , he only been in the 7th grade 3 times. He be learnin’ !!!!!! Better prosecute the weapons charges , Felonies , Punk needs jail , Let this “punk with a gun” find out about Leroy and Bubba’s “big guns! ,

  8. Considering Scream was produced by Harvey Weinstein, this makes it extra scary.

  9. Bob Smith says:

    It’ll be determined to be a toy gun and hallway prank?

  10. Jack Foobar says:

    Are there any actual Americans at that school, or should this be filed under World news?
