An angry father is accused of bringing a mini-draco AK-47 firearm to his son's middle school in West Palm Beach on Monday, according to a Palm Beach County School District report. 

An assistant principal had called Freeman earlier in the day about his son and during the conversation Freeman said, “you’re all dead,” the report stated.

A school police officer greeted Freeman when he arrived on campus. Freeman was in a wheelchair and the handle of a large handgun appeared to be sticking out of his pants, police said.

A school safety claims that he found the father, Christopher Freeman, in front of the main office with a gun sticking out of the front of his pants. Christopher stated, "I want to see the guy who slammed my son. I've got something for him," according to his arrest report.

The safety officer immediately put the school on a Code Red lockdown. He apprehended and searched Christopher where he found a loaded Romarm/Cugir AK-47 Mini Draco pistol, police said. 

According to his arrest report, Christopher told police that he received a FaceTime call from his son at 3 p.m. His son was allegedly crying and said a teacher had slammed him.The distraught father told officers that he was upset and came to the school, but didn't realize he was carrying the weapon because he carries it all the time for protection. 

Christopher is facing several charges including possession of a firearm on school grounds, aggravated assault, and disruption of a school function. In court Tuesday, a judge set Freeman's bond at $75,000.
