Teen arrested over imitation firearm on school bus

Student had a toy gun, police said

A 15-year-old student at John Gray High School has been arrested for alleged possession of an imitation firearm, the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service has confirmed.

The imitation firearm was a toy gun, police said in a press release.

The teen was arrested on Friday, May 23, and he is currently on police bail, according to the press release.

The Ministry of Education last week confirmed there had been a report that a pupil on one of the John Gray High School buses on Tuesday “may have been in possession of a firearm or something resembling a firearm.”

Chief Inspector Brad Ebanks, of the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service, said the matter is under investigation.
