Police: Bowie Student Brought Gun To School In Backpack

BOWIE, Md. (AP) — A 16-year-old boy is charged with bringing a loaded gun to Bowie High School.

Bowie police say another student warned school officials about the gun on Friday morning. The 10th grade student was removed from class, and officers found a 40-caliber handgun in the teenager’s backpack.

The student was charged with possession of a weapon on school property. There was no indication that the teen pointed the gun or used it to threaten anyone.

The school notified parents of the incident Friday afternoon in a letter.
