Leon County Sheriff officials arrested a Tallahassee high school student Thursday after he pulled a gun during a fight on school grounds.

According to a report from the Leon County Sheriff’s office, the 16-year-old student attempted to pull a gun out of his jacket when a fight broke out near the Godby high school cafeteria Thursday morning. The gun fell to the ground and Leon County Schools spokesman Chris Petley says a Godby administrator recovered it.

“No students were harmed during the altercation. All students involved face either an arrest, immediate suspension and all have been recommended for expulsion,” Petley says.

The sheriff’s office says five students were involved in the fight. They have been charged with fighting in public.
