VIRTUAL SCHOOL CALLS COPS ON STUDENT
BB guns seen during virtual class sparks police visit
A Baltimore mother is outraged after she says police showed up at her home last week to investigate a complaint from her son’s school,
Over BB guns that were seen during a virtual learning lesson.
A fifth-grader at Seneca Elementary School, is a Boy Scout who is trained in archery and firearm safety and owns several BB guns.
Ms. Lancaster said her son keeps his bow and BB guns displayed on a wall in his bedroom,
Which was apparently within view during a recent Google Meet class,
In which he had been enrolled since March due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Ms. Lancaster said police officers showed up at her home on June 1 after someone had complained to her son’s school.
“I had no idea what to think.
I’ve never been in any legal trouble whatsoever. I’ve never had any negative encounter with law enforcement,” she told WBFF.
“I had no idea. I really didn’t know what to think.”
“So, I answered the door. The police officer was, he was very nice.
He explained to me that he was coming to address an issue with my son’s school,” she continued.

“And then explained to me that he was here to search for weapons, in my home.
And I consented to let him in. And then I, unfortunately, stood there and watched police officers enter my 11-year-old son’s bedroom.”
Ms. Lancaster said the police left after about 20 minutes and determined no further action was necessary.
According to emails Ms. Lancaster provided to WBFF,
A school administrator said a screenshot of the boy’s guns was taken during an online class.
The Seneca Elementary principal was then notified,
Then a school safety officer called the police because the “weapons” were apparently not “secured.”
“I felt violated as a parent, for my child, who’s standing there with police officers in his room,
Just to see the fear on his face,” Ms. Lancaster said.
According to the emails, the school compared bringing a weapon to a virtual class to bringing a gun to school, WBFF reported.
