South African pupil held 'for aiming gun at teacher'

A 15-year-old South African student has been arrested for allegedly pointing a firearm at a teacher in Johannesburg.

The alleged incident took place at Eldorado Park Secondary School on Wednesday.

It’s unclear what sparked an altercation between the grade eight boy and his teacher.

He was charged with possession of a dangerous weapon before being released into the custody of his
parents as he is still a minor under South African law.

The teenager will appear in court on Friday.

Meanwhile the education department’s spokesperson Steve Mabona said the teacher is receiving counselling.

Mr Mabona added that his department has adopted a “zero-nonsense approach towards delinquents and will demonstrate no mercy towards lawlessness”.
