Video shows apparent gun falling out of student’s backpack in NYC

A Staten Island teen dropped what appeared to be a gun inside a school as he was horsing around with a friend – sending him bolting from safety agents, according to cops and video.

The apparent weapon fell onto the floor after the 17-year-old jumped onto a pal’s back at Port Richmond High School around 11am, cops said.

The video shows school safety agents who were standing nearby trying to stop him from leaving – but he flees out of the building.
