BEAVERTON, Ore. - On April 24 at about 3:45 p.m., Beaverton Police were summoned to Conestoga Middle School regarding a report of a man with a gun on school property.

Two parents waiting for their child to exit the school were parked at the curb when they noticed the suspect walk by and approach a group of students in the parking lot.

They saw him pull out a black handgun from the back of his pants and show it to the group that surrounded him.

At one point the complainants observed the suspect press the gun into the stomach of one of the students.

Other witnesses said he "worked the slide" back and forth and pointed it at the school pulling the trigger.

The suspect eventually put the gun into the back of his pants and rode off on his skateboard.

The school was put into lockdown while police attempted to locate the suspect.

The suspect was located by responding officers several blocks away and handcuffed until authorities could determine exactly what happened.

The suspect was armed with a sheathed knife and a realistic looking black Glock replica Airsoft handgun which fires small plastic BB-like projectiles.

The suspect said that he was just showing it to some friends and acknowledged that doing it in front of a school was probably a bad idea.

Dusten Jacob Williams, 20, was charged with Disorderly Conduct.

Conestoga students departure from school was delayed for less than ten minutes.
