An unnamed Ft. Meyers, Florida teen disarmed Quadryle Davis who pointed a loaded weapon at the head of another student, threatening to “whack” him, on a school bus – the assumption is that Davis allegedly also had the gun with him at Cypress Lake High School in Lee County. One unnamed hero received an “emergency” suspension because he was involved in an “incident” involving a “weapon.” Three boys were involved in getting the gun out of Davis’ hand. It’s unclear whether the three heros were all suspending or one was suspended.
FORT MYERS, FL -A 15-year-old student at Cypress Lake High School was arrested after Lee County deputies say he brought a gun to school.
On February 26, detectives spoke with a 15-year-old who said he had gotten into a fight with another student; and that particular student had pointed a gun right at his face.
The victim says as he was getting off the school bus, he noticed that 15-year-old Quadryle Davis had a gun sitting on his lap and that Davis was making eye contact with him.
The victim says Davis then stood up and the two began to fight. As the fight continued, the report states, Davis pointed the gun right at the victim and threatened to shoot him.
“I said, ‘Are you going to shoot me bro?’ And he said, Yeah, I’m going to whack you,’” said the victim.
Other students on the bus rushed Davis and wrstled the gun away.
“I’m thankful for the people that came to help,” said the victim. I was scared; I thought my life was in danger.”
But during his investigation, Davis was identified as a possible suspect in the case.
The detective spoke with Davis’ mother, who allowed him to search her son’s room. According to the report, investigators found a loaded .22 caliber RG 14 revolver in Davis’ dresser drawer.

Authorities confirmed to WFTX the weapon was indeed loaded, and the arrest report stated the suspect, identified by WVZN-TV as Quadryle Davis, was “pointing the gun directly” at the other student and “threatening to shoot him.”
That’s when, the teen told the station, he and two others tackled the suspect and wrestled the gun away. The next day, all three were suspended.
The school’s referral slip said he was given an “emergency suspension” for being involved in an “incident” with a weapon. Lee County School District spokesman Alberto Rodriguez said in a statement that “If there is a potentially dangerous situation, Florida law allows the principal to suspend a student immediately pending a hearing.”
The cameras on the school bus were not working. The video below says the first victim and Davis were football players on the same team.
