GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KREX) — On Thursday an airsoft gun was found by a student in the boy’s restroom at East Middle School.

A Grand Junction Police Department spokesperson said the police were called at 9:31 AM, and that the first responders were D51 security.

One Teacher said they didn’t find out about the incident until a meeting Friday morning.

Parents were some of the last people to find out, only receiving this email Thursday night.

The email sent to parents after the incident on Thursday.

“When I initially received the email I was like oh c*** it’s the second day of school,” said Katie Smith, the parent of an East Middle School student.

“It’s a kid. They’re in Middle School, it’s an airsoft gun, he was just being stupid,” said Smith.
