LAFAYETTE, La. UPDATE: One juvenile has been arrested in an investigation into a BB gun that was brought on Cpl. Michael Middlebrook Elementary School’s campus.

According to Lafayette Police Department spokesperson Cpl. Bridgette Dugas, a juvenile suspect was charged with aggravated battery after “firing the BB gun and hitting the victim in the foot.”

The shooting did not injure victim, Dugas said.

Some students, including the suspect, had already been dismissed for the day, which is why an arrest wasn’t immediately made, Dugas said.

The arrest was made the following morning.

Because of their ages, no additional information has been released on the suspect and victim.

ORIGINAL: A student was found in possession of a BB gun Tuesday at Cpl. Michael Middlebrook Elementary School in Lafayette.

The student, who will not be identified, was not injured and no other students were injured, Public Information Officer Allison Dickinson said.
