The father of an Oahu eighth-grader arrested after a gun he was showing friends fired at school says the boy found the weapon in a secluded area of campus.
The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported Tuesday that Jason Takayesu said the Glock pistol isn't his, and he never owned a gun. Police previously said it's registered to someone with a different last name from the eighth-grader.
Takayesu says his son will be suspended his freshman year and will attend an alternative school.
Police arrested the boy after the gun discharged before classes started Monday at Highlands Intermediate in Pearl City. A bullet narrowly missed one student and left another with minor injuries.
Takayesu says his son broke down after being told he could have killed someone.
Takayesu apologized for his son's actions.
