A Franklin High School student who allegedly pulled out a BB-gun during a fight outside school was arrested and booked into King County Jail Wednesday.
Seattle police say someone called 911 after seeing the teen pull the gun out of his backpack around noon. Officers and school security found the student outside the school and found a gas-powered BB gun back in his bag.
The teen was booked into jail because he had possessed the weapon while at a school facility, according to Seattle Police Department’s online blotter.
“Kids, if you haven’t figured it out by now, DO NOT bring guns (real, BB, potato or otherwise) to school,” the blotter post says.

A 14-year-old boy who allegedly brought a handgun to his Renton-area middle school on Monday pleaded not guilty today to a charge of second-degree unlawful possession of a firearm in King County Juvenile Court.
The youth, who is not being named because he has been charged as a juvenile, is accused of pulling out a gun while at Northwood Middle School, which is in the Kent School District. He allegedly showed the gun to another student and was overheard talking about the firearm, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office.
When deputies showed up, they escorted the boy from his classroom and found the unloaded gun in his jacket, sheriff’s spokeswoman Sgt. Cindi West said. West said that the boy had no ammunition on him.
She also said that the serial number on the gun had been removed.
The boy was also wanted on an arrest warrant on charges of residential burglary and fourth-degree assault. The boy is alleged to have broken into an Auburn home on Oct. 25, 2009 and then struck a female neighbor who interrupted the burglary.
