Suffolk County Police have arrested a Centereach teenager after he pointed a BB gun that appeared to be a handgun at a school bus in Centereach.

Following a dispute, a 17-year-old male threatened to shoot another student while riding on the bus Sept. 21. The teen exited the bus on Garden Street and pointed what appeared to be a handgun at the bus.

After an investigation, it was determined that the weapon was a BB gun without a red tip.

The 17-year-old Centereach male was arrested by 6th Precinct Crime Section officers Sept. 23 and charged with three counts of second-degree menacing. He was issued a desk appearance ticket and scheduled for arraignment at a later date.
