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"
