A high school student from Florida who wrestled a loaded gun away from another teenager who was threatening to shoot is being punished.
The 16-year-old student from Cypress Lake High School in Fort Myers struggled with the suspect on the bus ride home.
Witnesses say the suspect aimed his weapon point blank at another student and threatened to shoot.
The student who has stated he does not want to be identified because he fears for his safety, says there's 'no doubt' he saved a life by disarming the gunman. The next day the school suspended him for three days.
The student says the struggle began as he grappled with a football player who was threatening to shoot a teammate he had been arguing with.
He grabbed the .22 caliber RG-14 revolver away from the suspect.
Police reports state the suspected gunman was arrested and charged with possession of a firearm on school property and assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill.
Sergeant David Valez of the Lee County Sheriff's Office said an investigation into the incident is ongoing.
Authorities have said there was no video available of the tussle because school bus surveillance cameras weren't working.
