ABC 4 News is looking into bullying so extreme, an 11 year-old girl is scared to go to school. Kids taunt her, slap her, and even shoot at her with b-b guns, all because she's overweight. Her mom says she's tried to get help from the school, but nothing is happening, and the harassment is getting worse.

Jordine McIntire is in her last 2 weeks of elementary school at Endeavor Hall Charter School, and she's excited. Not about graduating, she’s ready for her constant torment to stop.

Jordine's mom, Angie, says her daughter started getting bullied in December.

"Since then its gotten worse they continue to call her names, they pick on her all the time they threaten to kill her, they shot her with a bb gun. This week, a kid slapped her in the face." Angie said.

Jordine said that happened outside on the playground.

"We just got done playing PE, and he said you suck, ha-ha and he slapped me," Jordine said.

While that was the first physical altercation that happened on the playground, jordine said the verbal abuse has been going on for months.

“I try to do my best in PE, but when people make fun of me it kind of makes me not want to play PE anymore," she said.

Angie has tried everything.

"I went to the principal 3 different times, he says he'll do what he can but, I haven't seen anything yet," she said.

Angie also talked with Jordine's teacher several times. But when Jordine complains in class, she says her teacher tells her the kids are just being silly.

"It makes me feel bad because they're just always calling me fat and it's kind of making my confidence go away," Jordine said.

Angie has seen her daughter's confidence fade.

"It’s hard when she's crying every day and she doesn't want to go to school anymore," Angie said.

After months of complaints and no changes, Angie reached out to ABC 4. We wanted to get to the bottom of it, so we called Endeavor Hall’s principal, Luis De La Cruz.

"We take every threat every occurrence seriously and try to follow procedures to make sure that this doesn't reoccur," he said.

We tried to get him to expand on that, but he told me "per policy" he couldn't discuss the situation.

Next, we went to the source, the home of the alleged bully.

We wanted to find out if his mom knew what was going on.

"Are you aware of this?" I asked

"I am but I’m aware she stabbed him with a pencil too," she responded.

We asked jordine about that pencil incident. She admitted to doing it, but says it was in self defense.

"Sometimes I try to fight back but I don't do it that much because I don't want to get in trouble," she said.

Angie said she doesn’t want to remove her daughter from the school, but if things don’t change, she has no choice.

"I hope they put a stop to it, I hope they wake up and pay attention to these kids."
