Virginia Beach, VA - Two 7th grade boys in Virginia Beach have been suspended from school for shooting an airsoft gun in one of the boy's front yard. A school committee voted to suspend Khalid Caraballo
and Aidan Clark for an entire year.
Khalid says he and friends were playing with the non-lethal guns on his lawn while they waited for the school bus. He admits to shooting at two other friends, but said he never took the gun off the family's private property.
A concerned neighbor called 9-1-1.
The principal says other kids were on their way to the bus stop when they were hit with the pellets, so the school has jurisdiction.
The boys' parents don't agree. Khalid and Aiden are suspended until next June for "possession, handling and use of a firearm."
A hearing will be held in January to determine if they will be allowed back in school.
Virginia beach police say no one will be charged in the case.
