CMS: Tuckaseegee Elem. students shot 3 others with air-soft gun

Two Tuckasegee Elementary School students face disciplinary action for shooting three other students with an air-soft gun.

The students fired the air-soft gun on a school bus on Monday afternoon, causing minor injuries to three of their classmates, CMS officials said.

The school on Thursday sent home letters to parents about the incident, after learning about it Wednesday, spokeswoman Tahira Stalberte said.

She said the gun fired pellets that didn’t actually penetrate the skin of the students who were injured. A Charlotte-Mecklenburg police report described the weapon used as a BB gun.

CMS police were investigating the incident. The students who shot the gun were disciplined according to district policy, Stalberte said.
