Boy charged with bringing gun to school

Posted: Monday, February 16, 2009

FAIRBANKS - Fairbanks police say a 14-year-old boy brought a gun to his middle school and was arrested.

A student Thursday afternoon approached administrators at Randy Smith Middle School and alerted them to a possible problem.

Interviews with other students led them to the 14-year-old.

A search of the boy's locker revealed an unloaded handgun and ammunition.

The boy was transported to the Fairbanks Youth Facility.

Police Sgt. Jeromey Lindhag says a weapons misconduct charge has been forwarded to the district attorney's office.

The student also could be banned from the school for one year.
