Boca students say man in car near school had a gun

BOCA RATON – Students from Boca Raton Middle School at 1251 NW 8 St. say a man in a car seen near the school Feb. 17 had a gun, a police report said.

According to police who investigated, two students told officers that around 2:20 p.m., a group of students were on school grounds near the fence separating the school from Meadow Reach Apartments. They saw an older model red or maroon sedan occupied by three or four males in their late teens drive through the parking lot of the apartments. Some of the students began to hoot and holler at the people in the car.

The report said one of the males in the back seat hung his arm out of the car and was holding what appeared to be a handgun. The male told the students he was going to kill them all, but never pointed the gun at them. The vehicle then left the area, police said.

One witness described the male holding the gun as bald. A second witness said the male had dreadlocks. A surveillance video did not provide any help.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective John Moran at (561) 338-1315 or Palm Beach County Crime Stoppers at (800) 458-TIPS.
