Teenager facing felony charges after bringing an automatic weapon to school

A Missouri teen has been charged with multiple felonies after bringing a gun to school.

The boy allegedly brought a Glock 19 handgun to school. The weapon had been modified into an automatic weapon using another device, commonly known as a “switch.” Authorities were able to disarm the teen without incident and do not believe that there was a broader or specific threat to the school.

The charges include unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful use of a firearm, and first-degree tampering. As a result, he is currently being held in secure detention while awaiting further legal proceedings.

This is just one of several incidents where a student has bought a gun to school this year.
