PERMIAN BASIN - It's a troubling trend in the Basin. A spike in toy guns and weapons have been reported on several Odessa and Midland school campuses in the past two weeks.

Now another Odessa student is in trouble after he brought an air soft gun to school on Tuesday.

The boy reportedly brought the gun in his backpack to Cavazos Elementary and was showing it off.

Another student grabbed the gun and turned it over to school officials.

We're told the air soft gun wasn't loaded and no one was ever in danger.

ECISD is reminding parents that it doesn't matter if it is a toy gun.

If you're child brings it to school, they will be punished.
