FAST FIVE: Kansas Girl, 13, Charged With Felony For Making "Gun-Like Hand Gesture" Toward Classmates
Kansas Girl, 13, Charged With Felony For Making “Gun-Like Hand Gesture” Toward Classmates Authored by Elias Marat via The Mind Unleashed blog, A 13-year-old girl in Overland Park, Kansas, was arrested last month and charged with a felony after police say her classmates claim she made a “gun-like hand gesture” at multiple students.
The girl, who is a student at Westridge Middle School, flashed the “finger gun” at four fellow students and then toward herself on September 18 after her classmates asked her which five people in the classroom she would kill, said Overland Park Police Chief Frank Donchez.
Donchez told USA Today: “Overnight, some of those students contacted the school administration and expressed their fear of this individual, that based on this incident, they were in genuine fear of this individual.” The context of the conversation remains unclear but the girl is now living in California, according to the Kansas City Star.
The children were charged with misdemeanors and the Hocker Grove principal said that no evidence suggested the teens planned to use their guns at school.
