Voiced by Amazon Polly

An investigation by Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office School Resource Officers led to the recovery of a loaded handgun hidden on an AMI Kids school bus in Fort Walton Beach this afternoon.

A Snapchat video was sent to an SRO in Crestview depicting what appeared to be a student brandishing a firearm on a bus. An immediate investigation led deputies to AMI Kids School in Fort Walton Beach, a school for at risk-students. Deputies located a loaded gun hidden in a seat on a bus.

Two students are currently being questioned as the investigation continues.

Additional information will be released at the appropriate time.
