Two students were arrested after loaded guns and drugs found on high school campus

DEERFIELD BEACH, FL – Two students at Deerfield Beach High School were taken into custody on Monday after law enforcement officers from the Broward Sheriff’s Office discovered two loaded firearms and illegal drugs in a vehicle on school grounds, according to local media reports.

The high school, situated at 910 Buck Pride Way, was put on lockdown around 3:06 p.m. as a safety measure, resulting in a delay in the school’s dismissal process. The lockdown was initiated despite there being no immediate threat to the school or its students, but as a necessary precaution given the circumstances.

Law enforcement officers reportedly found two firearms, multiple loaded magazines, and illicit drugs in the vehicle. The lockdown was lifted after approximately 20 minutes, and students were allowed to leave the campus.

The incident reportedly began with a fight between two female students earlier in the day, resulting in one student being transported by ambulance due to a suspected broken nose. However, law enforcement has not yet confirmed these details.

Students expressed their fear and concern as news of the incident spread. The identities of the two students detained have not been released, and the reasons for bringing the weapons to school remain unclear. The Broward Sheriff’s Office is currently investigating the incident.

This incident follows closely on the heels of another local event, where a student from Stranahan High School was arrested for bringing a loaded firearm to school.
