SHREVEPORT, La. – Two teens are in jail tonight after they robbed two of their schoolmates on Wednesday, said Sheriff Steve Prator.
Around noon on Thursday, Detective Thomas Lites was notified of a robbery that happened on the Captain Shreve High School campus the day before.
Det. Lites’ investigation revealed two teens robbed two other teens inside one of the school’s bathrooms. During the incident, one of the suspects brandished what victims believed to be a real gun.
Deputies found a realistic looking pellet gun during a sweep of the campus. However, detectives do not believe it was the gun used for the robbery.
Detectives ultimately arrested two teenage suspects. They were booked into the Caddo Parish Juvenile Detention Center and charged with first degree robbery.
