Antelope Valley High School was shut down while sheriff's deputies looked for a fake gun that a student flashed in class.The deputies found the sophomore boy at home and questioned him about the incident, according to City News Service. He admitted to the incident and told deputies that he had thrown the replica gun away somewhere on campus. That prompted a lock-down while deputies searched through trash bins.

The boy was arrested and charged with drawing or exhibiting an imitation firearm in a threatening manner.
