Police arrested a man they said had a gun inside his car on the campus of a southwest Miami-Dade high school and allegedly threatened his girlfriend with it.
19-year-old Ethan Duey was arrested Wednesday and faces several charges, including possession of a firearm on school property and aggravated assault.
According to an arrest report, security monitors at Miami Palmetto Senior High School were notified by a female student at the school that she had just gotten into a verbal argument with Duey and he may have had a gun with him in his car.
Miami-Dade Police made contact with Duey and placed him in custody. A K-9 dog was called and searched Duey's car, finding a loaded 9mm handgun inside the car.
The student said Duey had threatened to flatten her tires and shoot her with the gun, adding the couple had a history of physical abuse.
Duey is being held on $20,500 bond. A judge ordered him to stay away from the school and that he can't possess any firearms, weapons and ammunition.
"(Wednesday) it was reported that a parked vehicle in a lot across the street from the school was allegedly housing a weapon," Miami-Dade County Public Schools said in a statement. "The incident was immediately reported to Miami-Dade Schools Police Department who actively investigated resulting in the arrest of a student."
