Police: Des Moines teen brought handgun to school

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Authorities are investigating why a 16-year-old boy in Des Moines brought a loaded handgun to school.

Des Moines police say they arrested the teen from Scavo Alternative High School on Friday after the .32 revolver was found in his backpack. The incident took place shortly after classes were dismissed for the day.

The Des Moines Register reports (http://dmreg.co/13e15qy ) the student did not show the weapon at school or threaten anyone. A report says the boy told police that he found the gun and held onto it to “show it off.”

The teen will face expulsion by the school district.
