Student charged with bringing gun to school to face judge

An eighth grade student accused of bringing a loaded gun to Raymer Elementary School is expected to be arraigned in juvenile court on Monday.

A school spokesperson told WNWO news that an assistant principal stumbled upon the .380 handgun while looking for another student's coat on Friday. Police say the gun was never brandished inside the school and no one was injured.

The 15-year-old student admitted to purchasing the gun from someone on the street. He faces felony charges of carrying a concealed weapon, underage purchase of a firearm, possession of a defaced weapon, conveyance of a deadly weapon on to a school zone, and a misdemeanor safe school violation.
