Pendleton Student Brings Airsoft Guns Onto Bus

Posted: Updated:
PENDLETON, WA - A Sunridge Middle School student brought two airsoft guns onto a school bus Tuesday to bring them to a family member's home. 

At least one other student on the bus saw the guns in the student's possession  but did not know at the time they were airsoft guns.

Once the middle school student got off the bus at his regular stop in front of Lincoln Primary students told the bus driver about the airsoft guns seen. 

The bus driver stopped the bus and reported the incident to Mid Columbia Bus officials, who then  contacted police. 

Pendleton Police officers took statements from several students on that bus and identified the middle school student, who had by that time already left in a vehicle with a family member who was picking him up from the bus stop. 

Ultimately, the police investigation determined the guns were two airsoft guns, which are against Pendleton School District policy to have in school or on a school bus.
