Deputies Located a 9mm Pistol:
On February 10, 2016 at 8:35 a.m., HCSO received a 911 call from someone who advised that their relative was on a school bus, headed for Brandon Alternative School, and had sent a text advising that another student was loading a gun on his lap. At the time of the call, the bus was at Harney Road and Hwy 301. The witness continued to text updates to our caller, providing a clothing description of the student, as well as the location he attempted to hide the gun (4 seats behind the driver). Deputies made contact with the school bus at Hwy 92 just east of Hwy 579. Deputies evacuated all 7 students from the bus and located a 9mm pistol, a magazine loaded with 12 rounds and a black ski mask. The firearm was determined to be stolen out of Temple Terrace. Jamarcus Simms was arrested and charges are pending. There is no other information available at this time.
