MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A Wooddale High School student threatened a fellow student with a stun gun Tuesday, according to police reports.

Wooddale's assistant principal told deputies that two students got into an argument in class.

He told investigators one of the students pulled out her pink stun gun and threatened to use it on the classmate.

The stun gun was taken without incident.

According to the report, the school contacted the suspect's mother, who came to the school.

The student told investigators that she had bought the stun gun from a local corner store for five dollars, and that she had been bullied by the classmate for weeks.

The report states the student told her mother about the bullying but not school administrators.

The student was issued a juvenile summons.

The district said, "The principal told us there was no threat with the item. That’s the information we have."

They went on to say, "Our high schools perform some sort of screening each day, whether it be metal detection, wanding, or random searches. It’s up to each individual principal how he/she performs checks at school each day."
