Buffalo School Says They Reported Allegations That 14 Year Old Had A Gun In School, But… — 5 Facts You Need To Know

Fourteen-year-old Myles D. Taylor III fatally shot and killed 16-year-old Kelmyne J. Jones last week. Here are some facts the general public needs to be aware of, according to The Buffalo News and Buffalo School Board member Carl Paladino!

  1. There are reports that Taylor was seen with gun on his school bus in April 2013.
  2. Waterfront School Principal David Hills and Buffalo City School District Chief of Student Support Will Keresztes say they INFORMED POLICE TWICE regarding the Taylor having a gun…AND suspended the boy for five days while attempting to follow up with an investigation of their own by interviewing students and hoping someone would come forward and confirm the allegations. However, none of the students would say anything.
  3. BUT…Buffalo Police Department officials are saying the school DID NOT initially inform them of Taylor having a gun.
  4. School officials sought a longer suspension but had a lack of evidence that the student actually had a gun, so Taylor was allowed to return. No students would agree to testify, and Taylor’s mother was against any suspension at all, claiming her son never had access to firearms in the first place.
  5. Paladino is now pushing for policy changes regarding any students who are reported to have a gun in school or at a place associated with the school.
