PASCO COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) — Pasco Middle School and Pasco High School were in a controlled campus Wednesday afternoon.
According to a spokesperson for Pasco Schools and Pasco Middle School principal Jeff Wolff, as the school was dismissing shortly before 2 p.m., the principal noticed a group of young men causing a disturbance at the intersection of 14th and Howard.
As Wolff approached the group, a staff member shouted that one of them had a gun.
Wolff yelled to the students and staff who were still on campus to go back into the school and their active threat plan was implemented.
Most students had left the school on buses or with their parents.
The student with the gun immediately took off and Wolff followed and used a radio to alert the school resource officer.
After the suspects were contained, the school released the remaining students and staff.
The school was on controlled campus for less than 30 minutes.
