An 11-year-old and a 12-year-old student in Colorado were temporarily suspended from school after they were spotted with an Airsoft gun and a toy gun, respectively, during their online lessons.
Story 1: 11-year-old Maddox Blow, who goes to Bell Middle School in Golden, Colorado, told the FOX31 Problem Solvers that he finished a quiz early at one of his online classes and got bored waiting for the others, so he took his Airsoft gun and started fidgeting with it.
The teacher noticed Blow playing with the Airsoft gun several hours after the lesson while reviewing the recordings. According to an email that Justin Blow, Maddox’s father, received from the teacher, “Maddox Blow was posing with what looked like a toy gun. He did this for a few minutes, showing the gun and putting in the gun clip on camera.”
A school resource officer reported the incident to a local police officer, who went to Blow’s house for a welfare check.
