This information is from the Madison Police Department:
On October 18, 2012 at 0803 hours, Madison Police Department was notified by the administration at Daniel Hand High School that a student at the school had been found in possession of a facsimile firearm on the school property. School administrators and security personnel had identified the student and removed the facsimile firearm from his possession as the police were notified.
Madison Police Patrol and Criminal Investigation personnel responded to the school. The investigation revealed that a 14 year-old male student had shown the facsimile firearm, which was an “Airsoft” style pistol, to other students on a school bus. One student who had seen the firearm alerted a parent who notified the school. There were no injuries, and the investigation revealed that the firearm was unloaded.
Madison Police arrested the student and charged him with Possession of a Weapon on School Grounds, Carrying a Facsimile Firearm, and Breach of Peace. He was released to the custody of his parents and will appear at the Superior Court for Juvenile Matters in New Haven.
