Teen arrested, accused of pointing gun at Rochester High student

A 17-year-old Pontiac boy was arrested and arraigned Wednesday, accused of bringing a gun to Rochester High School last week, pointing it at another student and pulling the trigger. Allante Thompson was arraigned before 52-3 District Court Magistrate Marie Soma in Rochester Hills on charges of carrying a handgun in a weapons-free school zone — a five-year felony — and felonious assault in a weapons-free school zone — a four-year felony. His bond was set at $5,000 with 10 percent allowed to be posted for release. Police say Thompson entered the locker room at the school around 2:45 p.m. June 8 while several students were preparing for athletic practices. He lifted up his shirt, pulled a handgun from his waistband, pointed it at a student sitting on a bench and pulled the trigger, police said. No projectile was fired, police said, and the weapon didn’t appear to have any ammunition in the chamber. Thompson acted like it was a joke and walked away, police said. The incident was not reported until Friday after a teacher noticed that the 17-year-old student wasn’t acting as he normally does. When the teacher questioned the student, he told her that the gun had been pointed at him. The Oakland County Sheriff’s Office began investigating at that point. During an investigation, other students reported seeing Thompson that day with either a gun or something that looked like a gun. Some students said they saw him point it at the other student, and one student saw Thompson remove the ammunition clip from the weapon, rack out the round that was in the chamber and then point the gun at the student, according to police. The student who reported the incident attends Rochester High School. Thompson attends the Alternative Center for Education in Rochester Hills and played on the Rochester High School basketball team. Thompson has been suspended from school.
