Students suspended for shooting Airsoft gun in their own yard

VIRGINIA BEACH, VA (WWBT) -

Two Virginia Beach middle school students were suspended Tuesday morning for shooting an Airsoft gun while waiting for the school bus.

According to WAVY, Students Aidan Clark and Khalid Caraballo say they never brought the gun to the school bus stop - they only used it in Caraballo's front yard. Caraballo's property is 70 yards from the bus stop.

In a letter to WAVY, Larkspur Middle School Principal Matthew Delaney stated that the students were shooting each other, and that one student was hit only 10 feet from the bus stop.

Clark and Caraballo were suspended until June for possession, handling and use of a firearm. A hearing in January will be held to determine if the two students will be allowed back.
