7th graders get in argument in class, when one pulls out a gun

Two 7th grade boys got into an argument in class, in Los Angeles. One pulled out a knife, at which point the other reached into a backpack and pulled out a gun. The backpack and gun had come from a third boy.

Luckily, no one was hurt and the boys were stopped by campus security.

From the article:

Authorities say three South Los Angeles middle school students were taken into custody after two of them pulled out a knife and gun during an argument in a 7th-grade class.

Partnership for Los Angeles Schools spokesman Patrick Sinclair tells the Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/zgLJDu ) that the Samuel Gompers Middle School students began arguing Wednesday afternoon when one of them pulled out a knife. The other boy then grabbed a backpack and took out a gun.

Sinclair says the other students saw what happened and immediately ran out the door. No one was hurt.

Sinclair says the boys were quickly apprehended by campus security, along with a third student who was not in the classroom but brought the backpack with the gun. All three were turned over to Los Angeles police.

Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
