Two Teenagers Arrested After Gun Scare

DESTIN - Two teenage boys are arrested after a gun scare involving Destin Middle School.

The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office got a call that a student armed, armed with a gun, was headed to Destin Middle School.

Deputies rushed to the school because the initial report stated the armed student was on a bus. But no weapon was found.

A short time later, deputies located the 16-year old and 13-year old suspects walking on Highway 98 near Benning Drive. The 16-year old had a BB gun pictured above tucked into his waistband.

Investigators say the teenagers also face charges in connection with an incident overnight on Okaloosa Island. No details about that crime have been released.
