Armed student

    A Neshaminy High School student is in a juvenile detention center after bringing a gun to school yesterday. The 16-year-old brough his brother’s .45 caliber handgun into the buildling. After receiving tips from students, police and school administrators found the loaded gun in the boy’s schoolbag. The Bucks County Courier Times reports the student brought the firearm to school for fun.

     

    The student now faces felony charges for carrying a firearm without a license and a misdemeanor charge for possession of a weapon on school property.
