SOUTH CAROLINA—TMZ is reporting that a freshman at a South Carolina high school posted a photo of himself wearing a mask and holding what looks like an assault rifle with the caption, “Round 2 of Florida tomorrow.”
According to TMZ, the 9th grader is now in custody after an alarmed parent notified authorities and sent along the Snapchat pic.
Deputies descended on the home of the student, who told them the post was a joke. Law enforcement found the gun — an airsoft rifle — and after a search of the home determined the student had no access to firearms, said TMZ.
He was taken into custody and is at a juvenile facility.
