Colorado 12-Year-Old Suspended From School After Teacher Spots ‘Gun’ During Online School Session


A 12-year-old Colorado Springs, Colorado, boy received a five-day suspension from school after one of his teachers spotted a toy gun in his hand during an online art class, local news reports.

Isaiah Elliot was participating in a group virtual learning session, a local Fox affiliate reports, when he allegedly “flashed” what looked to be a weapon. The gun was, in fact, toy — “a neon green and black handgun with an orange tip with the words ‘Zombie Hunter’ printed on the side.”

The teacher “notified the school principal who suspended Isaiah for five days” — a suspension reportedly consistent with threatening classmates, even though Elliot was in a virtual environment and not in the same classroom as his peers where a “threat” of violence might be more meaningful. The principal then took the additional step of contacting the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office to conduct a “welfare check” on the family.
