FAKE! Thank goodness!
Earlier we reported that a Bronx Elementary School was under lockdown after police received a call from inside the establishment regarding students who were possibly armed…
But it turns out that the "armed" student was simply carrying a harmless Nerf gun!!
The confusion occurred because a school employee overheard a 12-year-old boy tell his friend he was carrying a "gun," prompting the employee to immediately inform a school administrator.
No official charges are being brought against the boy, but he MAY get in trouble with his school.
Bajeebus! Even fake guns cause real panic!
We're just happy that this was all a huge misunderstanding and ended up being NO cause for alarm.
