Girl, 12, caught with pellet gun at Longview school

LONGVIEW, Wash. – A 12-year-old girl faces expulsion from a Longview middle school after she brought a pellet gun to school on Monday, a school district spokeswoman said.

The girl showed the air gun to one of her classmates at Monticello Middle School just before 2 p.m.

The classmate immediately reported the gun to a teacher.

No one was hurt, and the gun was not used to threaten any students, according to Longview School District spokeswoman Sandy Catt.

The teacher confiscated the air gun and a separate bag of pellets, Catt said. The girl was taken to the principal’s office and police were called.

The student will likely be expelled from school, Catt said.

The principal will send out a message to parents explaining the situation.
