A Davenport Central High School student was found to have a pellet gun in school on Monday, but authorities said there was no threat to other students, and no one was injured.

“Nothing bad happened, but it should not have been in school,” said Dawn Saul, spokeswoman for the Davenport Community School District.

Shortly before the noon hour on Monday, one student noticed what Saul described as a “smaller-sized” pellet gun in the possession of another student and reported it to authorities.

Davenport police were called and investigated the incident. No information on the student with the pellet gun was released.

“The important thing to emphasize is that if a student sees something that doesn’t look right to them, please tell an adult,” Saul said.

That’s what happened in the pellet gun incident, she added.

Wow. What happened to common sense? Seriously. Pellet guns can easily be confused for the real deal. There are a lot of sites advising on this and promoting education such as http://www.airsplat.com/airsoft-safety.htm. It's just common sense, leave your air and pellet guns at home.

If this was a "real" pellet gun and not and air soft or standard BB gun then they can be fairly harmful if used to shoot someone. Especially the pellet handgun I had as a young teen, used compressed air to shoot a steel pellet at more than 1,000fps. It would no doubt put an eye out, or worse if shot in the right spot.
