Aside from notebooks, pencils, and pens, a 14-year-old girl was apparently packing a gun in her backpack on Monday afternoon. The girl, who had been bullied, pulled out the gun and began to load it, when 18 year-old Kaleb Eulls, a star athlete and now local hero, came to the rescue. He was able to tackle the girl and disarm the gun, ensuring the bus rider’s safety.

Eulls explains, “I just realized something had to be done, and it was just a lot of kids on the bus and [I] couldn’t let anything happen to them,” he said. “I tried to grab her attention, just keep her from pointing it at anyone else in the bus,” he said. In a matter of seconds, the girl was disarmed before any serious damage could be done.

Reports state that the 14 year-old girl (whose identity remains private) was bullied and is now being held in a county youth detention center. She has been charged with possession of a firearm on school property, 22 counts of attempted aggravated assault, and kidnapping.

    I am happy the young man took action and I am very proud of him for doing so. However, the question I want to know is what happened to push the 14 year old to the brinks of taking a gun to school and using it. She is still a child and somebody needs to talk to the kids in that school and on that bus. Apparently she had bullied to the point of feeling that no one cares. No she was not right in the action she took. I was bullied in school too and I remember feeling like I would break into pieces. She needs help. I pray that somebody (judge, lawyers, parents, teachers and even students) will look at her and reach out to help her. Jail is not the solution! She needs counseling and good mentor, someone who will stand with her and hear her when she is saying she is being bullied. Find out whats happening with her and those who know how to pray, pray for her.
