HUFFMAN — A Huffman Middle School has been detained by Birmingham Police after he was found with a gun at the school, according to Carol Robinson. The incident comes after a threat was made to the school on social media.
Few details have been released as police continue to investigate but, according to the report, a threat was made on social media towards “HMS” which was originally mistakenly attributed to Hueytown Middle School. An investigation later determined that it was made to Huffman Middle School.
With security increased, steps were taken to search students with scan wands as they entered the building. Backpacks were also searched. A walk through was conducted through the building before classes began.
