Student Busted With Gun, Ski Mask On School Bus

A tip to authorities may have headed off a local school massacre today.

Someone called 911 to say that they had gotten a text that a Brandon Alternative School student was loading a gun on the bus to school.

Hillsborough Sheriff’s deputies stopped the bus at Highways 92 and 579 and evacuated all students.


They found a stolen 9 millimeter semi-automatic handgun loaded with 12 rounds and a ski mask on 18 year old Jamarcus Simms.

Simms is in jail.

Charges are pending.
