A student was being questioned in connection with a stun gun incident at a Portrero Hill school Wednesday, one day after the campus was locked down on reports that a 14-year-old had a gun.

Just before 9 a.m., police said, officers responded to the International Studies Academy at 655 De Haro St. on reports that a male student had been zapped with a stun gun.

Police learned the student had been zapped on the wrist during a playful tussle with a female student, who had allegedly brought the device onto campus, police Sgt. Dennis Toomer said.

“It wasn’t intentional,” Toomer said, adding that the boy wasn’t injured.

Still, Toomer said, the female student could face consequences for possessing a stun gun as a minor.

It was the second straight day police responded to the school over a weapons incident. On Tuesday, the campus was briefly locked down following a report that an eighth-grader had a gun, police said. The student fled from the school but was soon located. He did not possess a gun, but a gun was found nearby, police said.
