Another Student Accused of Wanting to Take Gun to an Endicott School
7/6/2012 (Updated 7/7/2012 9:08:42 AM)There is a new element to a story that has been drawing a lot of viewer reaction since we ran it earlier this week--
It involved the year-long suspensions of two eighth grade boys at the Jennie F. Snapp school in Endicott--
They were accused of threatening to bring guns to school.
The boys' mothers--and their lawyer--all say the boys were falsly accused--by bullies--
As it turns out, around the same time, in late May, a six year old boy--in the first grade-- by the name of Tyler Bronson was accused by another student of wanting to bring a gun to the George F. Johnson school in Endicott--in his bookbag.
Recently, we spoke to him--and his mother. Tyler says the only gun he has is a nerf gun, and he never told the student or anyone that he wanted to bring it, or a real gun to school. He says real guns scare him.
His mother, Jessica Bronson, says an Endicott policeman came to their home early in the morning--unannounced, and searched the bookbag--and part of the house.
Later, the police department concluded that there was nothing to be concerned about.
Did the police and the school system handle the situation correctly?
Look for our updated report elsewhere on this page, as we hear from Tyler's mother, and the mayor of Endicott.
