MANZANOLA, Colo. (KKTV) - It isn’t clear if it was intentional, but a woman reportedly brought a BB gun to a volleyball match at a Colorado School.

Originally, the Otero County Sheriff’s Office was reporting a “juvenile girl” brought the BB gun on school grounds, but later announced a correction and stated the person in question is an adult.

The sheriff’s office is reporting the incident happened Wednesday afternoon in Manzanola. The woman was contacted by deputies and taken off school grounds.

“She has also been permanently trespassed from the school grounds and the investigation continues,” part of a post by the sheriff’s office reads.

The woman was identified as Stephanie Olguin.

According to the Student Handbook for Manzanola School District 3J, a BB gun is considered a “Dangerous Weapon.”

The following are listed as weapons in the handbook:

● A firearm, whether loaded or unloaded, or a firearm facsimile.

● Any pellet, “BB” gun or other device, whether operational or not, designed to propel projectiles by spring action or by compressed air.

● Any object, device, instrument, material or substance, whether animate or inanimate, used to or intended to be used to inflict death or serious bodily injury including, but not limited to; slingshot, bludgeon, brass knuckles or artificial knuckles of any kind.
