He shouldn't be on school grounds period with a BB gun.

Back up a was 7:44 p.m. was school in session? It's not like he went into the building & breeched security. Reporting the incident is fine but te headline screams NY Post like.

The Voice 2nd hand info however comes right to the mailbox, one can then seek additional info. Yorktown does send out info on emergency situations not on matters such as this.
