Gun seen on school surveillance video is look-alike weapon, police say

A gun is visible in school surveillance video of students fighting at an east Madison school Wednesday, police said.

Madison police said several students were arrested in the afternoon following a disturbance at La Follette High School on Pflaum Road.

According to the report, surveillance video shows two male students getting into an altercation. During the fight, one student pointed a handgun at another student, and the gun ended up on the floor.

Camera images show a third student picking up the gun, then the gun being taken out of the school by a fourth student.

Officers have recovered the weapon, which turned out to be a look-alike gun, police said.

Police said officers were in the process Wednesday of determining any charges the students should face.
