Virginia boys suspended for using fake guns in front yard

Posted: Updated:
VIRGINIA BEACH, VA - A school suspended two Virginia boys for a year after they were caught using airsoft pellet guns in one boy's front yard.

The two boys and four others were using the fake guns which uses plastic pellets while waiting for the school bus.

The boys admit to shooting at their friends but say they never took the guns off of the property.

A neighbor called 911 knowing the guns were fake but was unnerved.

The school says they have the right to suspend them because they were waiting for the school bus.

A full committee decided on the suspension following their zero tolerance policy on the use of "firearms."

The boys can appeal to return in January of next year.
