Boy charged in second school gun incident

WINONA, Minn. (AP) — Police say a 15-year-old boy accused of bringing a loaded gun to high school in Winona could face charges in a second similar incident at a football game.

Deputy Police Chief Tom Williams says the boy is accused of pointing a gun on a female student outside Paul Giel (GEEL) Field on Sept. 20. Williams says the girl’s father reported the incident last week.

KAGE radio (http://bit.ly/dkv18q ) reports the boy is also accused of bringing a handgun to school for several weeks and, on one occasion, pointing it at the head of another student near the bike racks. The boy remains in a secure detention facility.

Superintendent Scott Hannon has scheduled a meeting with parents at the high school Thursday evening.
