18-year-old arrested after trespassing at Deerfield Beach High School, deputies say

Deputies could be seen with guns drawn on campus

DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. – An 18-year-old man was arrested Wednesday after he was spotted trespassing at Deerfield Beach High school, authorities said. 

Broward Sheriff's Office officials said Braylan Fleming went on campus Wednesday despite a domestic violence injunction specifying that he stay away from his ex-girlfriend and the school. 

Authorities said Fleming has a history of carrying a gun and had been expelled from the school last year. 

BSO spokeswoman Gina Carter said the school was placed on lockdown shortly before 8 a.m. after they received a report of a trespasser on campus.

A view from Sky 10 showed deputies on campus with their guns drawn. 

Deputies appeared to be blocking roadways near the school and searching vehicles in the school parking lot.

Authorities said deputies, K-9 units and the agency's helicopter searched the campus, but Fleming had already left.

Deputies said he later surrendered to authorities and was taken into custody.

Deputies said the agency's Criminal Investigations Unit had been investigating Fleming for his alleged involvement in two robberies.  

He is now facing charges of trespassing on school grounds, violation of a restraining order and two counts of robbery.
