TWIN FALLS — A 17-year-old boy who police say pulled a gun on a Magic Valley High School student near campus turned himself in Tuesday to Twin Falls police.

A warrant for aggravated assault was served and the boy was booked into the Snake River Juvenile Detention Center, Twin Falls police said in a statement.

Another 17-year-old has been charged with conspiracy to commit aggravated assault, police said.

The incident happened Thursday after an argument between two students continued when classes dismissed. Two students were in an argument throughout the day and left in separate vehicles, police said. Students reportedly stopped at a red light at Second Avenue North and Addison Avenue.

A passenger in one of the vehicles — who wasn’t involved in argument — reportedly approached the vehicle of one of the students who was involved in the argument and brandished a firearm, police said.

The victim returned to Magic Valley High, where he contacted the school resource officer. More police officers were dispatched to the school.
