OKALOOSA COUNTY, FL – A man, armed with a knife was spotted on the grounds of a school in Okaloosa County when administrators called the authorities.
“A vigilant school administrator who spotted someone she didn’t recognize and who didn’t appear to belong on school grounds immediately alerted others and contacted OCSO School Resource Officers, who quickly detained, then arrested the man,” the OCSO reported.
The school official noticed 24-year old Deionuate Bradby, no known address, walking in with other students in a hallway at Choctawhatchee High School on Racetrack Road around 6:55 a.m. Friday and alerted other faculty members and SROs. Bradby was wearing a hoodie and had his hands in his pockets.
Bradby told SROs he was there to ask about his kid attending the school and that he had a “permitted weapon”.
When searched, SROs found a knife in Bradby’s pant’s waistband.
The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office charged Bradby with carrying a concealed weapon on school property and trespassing on school property with a weapon.
