At 12:30 p.m. on January 29, officers received a report that a student at Ellenvale Junior High School, 88 Belle Vista Drive, Dartmouth, was possibly in possession of a weapon. Officers responded and took a male youth into custody at 1:10 p.m. He was found in possession of two knives and an air soft gun.
Further investigation revealed that on January 28, between 3 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. this same youth pointed the gun at a female student while they were walking on a pathway near the school. The gun used in this incident is believed to be the air soft gun that was seized on Friday.
The youth faces multiple weapons offences as well as several breaches of court orders and will appear in court at a later date.
