Milwaukee Public Schools is revealing more about what happened when a 13 year old student brought a toy gun to Benjamin Franklin School at 2308 W. Nash Street.

No students were hurt, but two Milwaukee Police officers were injured and sent to a local hospital after trying to arrest the 13-year-old boy in the office.

Police say the officers were called to the school after the pellet gun was discovered.

As the officers spoke to the student, they say the teen became aggressive.

    "There was an incident at the end of the school day with MPD involving a student who had a toy pellet gun in school. The incident was contained in the school office and no other students were involved in the incident."

    Sharonda Smith and her family have lived across the street from the school for four years, and she says this is not the first problem at Franklin

  • "It's sad. It's definately sad. What was the teen  going to do if the gun wasn't found? If it was found later, if he had more time?" Smith said.

    She also said, "I've seen students or teens  start fires, some break windows. They come and rebuild the windows and the kids break them again."

    MPD says the case will be presented to the Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office in the coming days.
