A Catholic high school student in Argentina was filmed aiming a replica gun at a teacher's head while his back was turned.

The disturbing incident occurred in July at the Emaus school in El Palomar, Buenos Aires, before the students were taken out for winter recess.

The video recently went viral after it was shared on social media.

The 17-year-old student, whose name was withheld, was seen in the video that the plastic revolver aimed at Eduardo Seco, while the teacher explained a lesson to two other students.

Another boy stood behind the student with the toy gun and laughed.

A student then posed for a photo next to the student and his fake weapon.

This week, administrators conducted an internal investigation with the students and their parents and reprimanded both of them for their actions.

According to Gemignani, the student who brought the replica weapon to the school was freed from misconduct because he did not participate in the incident.

Emaús announced Tuesday that the fifth-year prep student, who aimed the gun, and his three other classmates who participated in the joke may complete the current school year, but they will not have access to the school in 2020.
