TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — Police in Tacoma say two boys accused of carrying a pellet gun and brass knuckles as they followed another student have been expelled from a high school.
Police spokeswoman Loretta Cool says police who responded Wednesday morning to a call about a teen carrying a gun and walking across a field toward Lincoln High School classrooms found several students who started running away. The News Tribune reports (http://is.gd/8L5JVD) the spokeswoman says one of those boys had brass knuckles and another a pellet gun altered to look like a real firearm.
