A 15-year-old is now charged with a felony after allegedly pointing a bb gun that looked like a real gun at others during an altercation at Bay High School.
The incident took place outside the gym during a basketball game on Friday.
Deputies broke up several groups that were arguing and fighting outside of the gym. After those groups were dispersed deputies were told that someone pointed a gun in a threatening manner during the incident.
“The next morning, additional information was developed by deputies in BCSO Community Services that the one holding a gun during the altercation outside the gym the night before was … Curtis James Jackson, Jr.,” officials wrote. “A social media post made by Jackson was found that had a picture of him holding a firearm.”
Jackson was located and arrested Saturday.
“A search warrant was obtained for the suspect’s father’s car and a BB gun that resembled an authentic firearm and matched the one in the social media post was found,” officials wrote.
Jackson was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a felony.
