1 student booked on felony charges after gun fired at Balboa HS

Classes resumed Friday at Balboa High School a day after a gun went off in a classroom, leading to a lockdown and the detention of four students.

School officials said they would offer classroom dicussions and extra counseling staff to students following the incident.

The school’s campus was locked down around 11:15 a.m. on Thursday after a gun went off inside a classroom.

Responding police searched the school and found the gun and a spent bullet casing. Four students were detained, one of them on suspicion of firing the gun and the other three for possibly assisting the shooter after the fact.

Police on Friday said one of those students was booked into the Juvenile Justice Center on felony charges of assault with a firearm, carrying a concealed firearm, possession of ammunition on school grounds, being a minor in possesion of a firearm, having a concealed weapon on school grounds, being a minor in possession of live ammunition and negligent discharge of a firearm.

The three other students were released to their parents, but could still face charges after further investigation.

One student suffered what school officials called a minor, non-life threatening injury during the incident, but it was not related to the gunshot, police said. That student was evaluated and released to their parents at the scene.

There were no other injuries.
