    FROM STNG WIRE REPORTS

    A 15-year-old has been charged as an adult for bringing a gun to his Southeast Side elementary school on Monday. The gun was not discharged and no one was injured.

    The eighth-grade boy was at the elementary school Monday afternoon when someone working at the school saw him pull a gun from his backpack and show it to other students before dismissal, according to Grand Crossing police Lt. Tim Bickham.

    The worker notified a school security guard, an off-duty Chicago Police officer, who called police. Officers responded to the boy’s home, were given permission to enter, and located the gun in the backpack, the lieutenant said.

    The gun was not fired and no one was hurt, Bickham said.

    The boy was charged as an adult with unlawful use of a weapon in a school, Bickham said.

    He apparently appeared in bond court Wednesday, but court information was not immediately known.

    Calumet Area youth division police are investigating.
