Cops: 8th grader, 17, brought gun to W. Pa. school

November 20, 2013

WASHINGTON, Pa. (AP) — A 17-year-old eighth grader was in juvenile custody after police say a gun fell out of his pocket during some horseplay in the hallway of a southwestern Pennsylvania school.

Police aren't identifying the Washington Junior/Senior High School student who was arrested Tuesday, because the case is being handled in Washington County Juvenile Court. But police say the student faces charges including disorderly conduct, risking a catastrophe, and a firearms charge.

Washington School District Superintendent Roberta DiLorenzo says the student was horsing around with another when the gun fell out of his pocket. That happened about 2:45 p.m. Tuesday at the school, which is about 20 miles southwest of Pittsburgh.

School officials and police say the gun was recovered and no shots were fired. The school was locked down until students were released about 4 p.m.
