Student displays toy gun on Florence SD1 bus Monday afternoon

FLORENCE COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – A 10-year-old student displayed a toy gun on a Florence School District One bus Monday afternoon, district officials confirmed in a news release.

WMBF News talked to Lionel Brown, the Florence District One Assistant Superintendent. And Brown said that he could not give out any specific information about the boy's case.

However, Brown did mention that school policy states that in a situation like this one the student committing the act is subject to suspension pending an administrative hearing.

Even though Monday's school bus issue caused quite a stir, Brown said everything on Tuesday was relatively calm. Brown added that the district did not receive an overwhelming number of calls from frantic parents.

The incident on the bus came a day before the district held a scheduled school safety drill. WMBF News talked to a few parents who said those kinds of drills are definitely needed. Safety at school is a nationwide concern.

"My children live in Florida, they go to school down there. They're in a big high school and it's always in the back of your mind as a parent. I spent 23 years in the military and I'm scared," Ben Fryar said.
