On May 15, 2023, just before 4:00 p.m., East Precinct officers were dispatched to Creative Science School (1231 Southeast 92nd Avenue) on reports that a former student was armed in tactical gear, had a gun, and was threatening to commit a shooting at the school. Following their protocol, school administrators put the school into lockdown and called 911.

Officers located the 13-year-old suspect near the intersection of Southeast 92nd Avenue and Southeast Stark Street. He was wearing a tactical vest, helmet, goggles, and was carrying what appeared to be a Glock handgun. Officers challenged the juvenile, giving him commands that would facilitate his safe arrest, and he complied. The teenage boy was taken into custody and the firearm was determined to be a realistic looking replica.

The juvenile was taken to the Donald E. Long Juvenile Detention Center, charged with Menacing with a Firearm and Disorderly Conduct.
