On October 28th during school hours, one of the deans brought 3 students into his office to speak with them at a school near St. Nicholas Avenue and 136th Street in Manhattan. When one of the boys sat down in the dean’s office an 8 mm gun fell out of his pocket. The boy grabbed the gun, ran out of the school and tossed the gun in a nearby construction site.
The 32nd Precinct’s Field Intelligence Officer responded with the NYPD’s Public Service Area 5 officers, recovered an unloaded 8 mm gun and arrested the 16 year old boy for criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of a firearm on school grounds.
What to do if you find a gun
Police will pay $100 for a handgun, sawed off shotgun or assault weapon.
· Call your local precinct, tell them you have a firearm and want to turn it in and they will guide you through the procedure.
· Do NOT just walk into the precinct with a gun. You will likely be arrested.
