Student caught with gun magazine at school

Police are investigating a report of a student being found in possession of a gun magazine on the compound of an urban school sometime after 11 a.m. today.

The 14-year-old male student, who was later interviewed by lawmen, said he took up the magazine unknown to his father and took it to school.

No other details have been released by police. However, Barbados TODAY was reliably informed by both teachers and students that the incident took place at Combermere School.

Repeated calls to Principal Vere Parris for a comment went unanswered.

    Was today show and tell at school? SMH at 14 he knows the repercussions of such an action and if his dad is a licensed gun holder then these should have been in a safe where only he is privy to the security code.

    I find JRSmith out of line when he decides all on his own that we have ” no one who has any concern for the safety and security pf the black people of our nation”. He obviously does not realise that we have one of the most hard working and effective Police forces in the Caribbean and possibly the World….look at our enviable detection rate. Look at our effective crime solving. Once again partisan politics is breeding stupid, unwarranted and totally inaccurate statements.

    Ricci Khan everyone has the right to voice their opinion. I certainly did not read anything partisan into what Jr Smith wrote. Maybe silly season is getting to some of us? Remember we all have the freedom to speech.

    Wayne that is exactly what I was going to ask What does the School he attends has to do with it ,,,

  20. Alex Alleyne May 10, 2017 at 8:30 pm

    Next it will be about his parents and if he drives to school, walk or catch the bus , have a head of dreadlocks or clean cut . This is still BARBADOS and some things never change.
    If its not HC or QC , you are dead and bury for most of you.
    Combermere is still the number one School for mixing a firm position with EDUCATION and SPORTS.
    It was always Combermere , Lodge and Presentation College along that line

    Will the student be remanded?.. Will the student be suspended ? Will the student return to school accompanied with their parents and an attorney at law ? Or maybe after school the student would have attended practice session over the other side of the road???????

    It’s down right ignorance and stupidity that after all you hear about guns and ammunition left lying around the houses of the owners, siblings shooting each other by mistake that this type of situation would happen. If that father has a license, it should be taken away. Like the Pitbull dogs that are seen in public without muzzles and nothing is done. You know when something is going to be done…when a’big shot’ family is mauled by one of these animals.
