New information has been released about the two boys who were suspended from school for playing with an Airsoft gun on their on private property while waiting for the school bus.

It appears a neighborhood mother called 911 to report the incident, but get this, she knew it was a toy gun and still called 911 anyway!

According to an updated NBC report,

A neighbor saw Khalid shooting the airsoft gun in his front yard. She told the dispatcher, “He is pointing the gun, and it looks like there’s a target in a tree in his front yard”.

WAVY.com located the 911 caller and spoke to her. She confirmed Khalid was taking target practice using a zombie hunter airsoft gun to kill the zombies. There was also a net behind the target to catch the plastic pellets.

The caller also knew the gun wasn’t real and said so, “This is not a real one, but it makes people uncomfortable. I know that it makes me (uncomfortable), as a mom, to see a boy pointing a gun,” she told the 911 dispatcher.

Here is the original story from yesterday:

According to a report by NBC News, two seventh grade Virgina boys were suspended from school and might be expelled for the year for possession of Airsoft guns.

Not too surprising, many schools have zero tolerance policies on toy firearms, and many Airsoft guns can look pretty realistic.

However, there is a twist in this story.

According to the report, the boys never brought the guns to school, on the school bus, or even to their neighborhood bus stop.

According to NBC,

WAVY News’ Andy Fox spoke with Khalid and asked if he took the gun to the bus stop or school. Khalid answered “No, sir,” to both questions.

Aidan’s father Tim Clark told WAVY.com what happened next lacks commons sense. The children were suspended for possession, handling and use of a firearm.

Based on that information we can only assume the alleged incidents took place on private property, completely unrelated to the school.

We agree with the boy’s father, however most of these zero tolerance decisions do lack common sense. Don’t believe me? Just check out some of the stories below from the past year.

What’s next? Suspending students for going to the shooting range or hunting with their parents?
