JACKSONVILLE, Fla. --  It was a scary walk home for a 6th grader on the First Coast.

"I was terrified."

A 6th grader at Eugine Butler Middle school says he was scared for his life.

Afraid of repercussions, he didn't want to be identified.

"I thought he was going to shoot," he said.

He was walking home with two of his classmates Wednesday when they pulled a gun on him three blocks from the school.

He says the two young boys had a BB gun in a backpack.

"He's scared to go back to school, he didn't want to say anything to me because he thought if I tell the police the boy might kill me the next day," said his mother, Shawnan Love.

Love called the 911 and then the school.

Duval Schools spokeswoman Jill Johnson told First Coast News since the incident did not happen on campus, JSO had to respond.

According to a police report, they did.

The officer spoke to the two young boys and confiscated the gun.

He told them both BB guns are not toys.

But his mother thinks more should have been done.

"You mean to tell me you can just run around pulling guns, BB guns, any kind of gun, my son doesn't know the difference between a BB gun and a real gun and you mean to tell me there's nothing to be done," she said.

Though she's filed a police report and spoken to the school, Love says she feels helpless.

"How am I supposed to protect him? That's what I want to know," she asked.
