Brothers had backpacks with guns and ammunition near Broward School

OAKLAND PARK, Fla. – MPs arrested two brothers after investigators said a school security officer discovered backpacks full of guns and ammunition opposite a charter school in Oakland Park on Thursday.

Isaiah, 16, and Jeremyah Taylor, 18, were in custody Friday night, facing multiple felony charges.

According to the Broward Sheriff’s Office, the deputies were notified by a school safety officer who acted on the tip of a hidden bag across from SunFire High School at 2360 West Oakland Park Blvd.

Deputies said the officer discovered two guns and two loaded magazines in two backpacks hidden in bushes at a RaceTrac gas station across the street.

Investigators said one of the backpacks contained a 9mm pistol with 11 rounds and two magazines. The other contained a black Beretta gun loaded with five rounds of ammunition and three cell phones. They said the school’s surveillance video helped them identify and track the Taylors.

Jeremyah Taylor’s booking report said he told investigators his younger brother gave him the gun for protection because he was a recent victim of violence, but added that he had no intention of harming himself or anyone else.

The Taylors face charges that include possession of a gun on school property and illegally carrying a concealed firearm. Jeremyah Taylor is also charged with unsafe storage of a firearm.

Local 10 News contacted the school for comment and had received no response as of Friday night.
