gunWhen a football player allegedly aimed a loaded .22 caliber revolver at another student on a Florida school bus, a 16-year-old student bravely wrestled it from him — then got suspended for his heroic action.

The incident occurred between Cypress Lake High students in Fort Myers, Florida on Tuesday afternoon. The student, who remains anonymous because he fears for his safety, said there was “no doubt” the gunman was aiming to kill.

“I think he was really going to shoot him right then and there,” said the suspended student, not identified by WFTX because of safety concerns. “Not taking no pity.”

The student said the suspect, a football player, threatened to shoot a teammate because he had been arguing with his friend.

Authorities confirmed to WFTX the weapon was indeed loaded, and the arrest report stated the suspect, identified by WVZN-TV as Quadryle Davis, was “pointing the gun directly” at the other student and “threatening to shoot him.”

That’s when, the teen told the station, he and two others tackled the suspect and wrestled the gun away. The next day, all three were suspended.

“How they going to suspend me for doing the right thing?” he asked.

Lee County School District spokesman Alberto Rodriguez said the students involved in the rescue were given an “emergency suspension,” which is standard protocol:

“If there is a potentially dangerous situation, Florida law allows the principal to suspend a student immediately pending a hearing,” said Rodriguez.

Though the students involved are able to return to school on Monday, one mother says that’s not enough:

“All the kids that was involved in this they should have a pat on their backs because they did the right thing to save someone from burying their child.”

The suspended teen is allowed to go back to school Monday.

The student gunman has been charged with “aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill.” Authorities say that is based on the information regarding the incident at this time, but the investigation is ongoing.
