Marjory Stoneman Douglas Student Reportedly Arrested For Snapchat Gun Threat

Marjory Stoneman Douglas Student Reportedly Arrested For Snapchat Gun Threat”

The black students' comments come just days after about 200 of their classmates attended the March for Our Lives in Washington, D.C., to protest gun violence, a movement started by fellow survivors of the February school shooting. Cops reportedly arrested the student at the school, after which he revealed the bullets belonged to his father and the weapon was a BB gun.

The students want their voices to be included in the conversation around safety at their school moving forward.

"We're not talking about clear backpacks and stupid things like that", said attorney Bradford Cohen. "Should we also return with our hands up?"

The parents of the student that was targeted hired attorney Brad Cohen, who told 7News the student who posted the photos on Snapchat plays the violent video game "Fortnite", the same game that, investigators said, shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz played. Without this conversation, she said, she would have never thought of that effect of heightened police staffing.

We reached out to the school but so far no word back. "Having all those police there made their school feel like a prison". She accepted Wasserman-Schultz' invitation to the panel with the caveat that she could bring her mentee, Stoneman Douglas student Mei-Ling Ho-Shing. When asked about what mistakes the media made covering the shooting, he said in response, "Not giving black students a voice". At Wednesday's conference, Tyah-Amoy looked at the cameras and questioned why there was not the same level of attention from the media and peers for black students as there has been for others.

"They were shook. It felt like there was a thousand police there", she said. "We have to have that conversation".
