Bellevue police continue their investigation into Wednesday’s report of a student inside Bellevue East High School armed with a gun. Students attending after-school activities were evacuated from the building just after 4 o’clock after other students reported seeing the student with the weapon.
Police were called and the student was located. The gun was a soft pistol that shoots plastic pellets. Police Chief Mark Elbert says at a quick glance it is difficult to tell the difference between a pellet gun and a pistol.
The student will face charges. No one was hurt.
