Student Brings Loaded Gun to Public School

A student at a Crown Heights public middle school was arrested Tuesday when administrators found a loaded gun in his backpack.

From the NY Post:

Police were called to the MS 61 Dr. Gladstone H. Atwell in Crown Heights shortly before 1 p.m. and took the 14-year-old boy into custody after he admitted he was carrying a 9mm pistol in his bag after being confronted by the school staffer.

The employee grew concerned after learning that the boy had confided to another school administrator that he had had a prior confrontation with some kids in the neighborhood who do not attend the school.

    The chidush is that they FOUND the loaded gun at that school, not that it was brought there. I am sure there have been thousands of loaded guns on that property over the years.

    YES, #1 is correct.
    and next thing is that the person who did the checking was really alert and aware.
