Teen charged with bringing gun to Wilder MS in Henrico

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) -

A 13-year-old student has been charged with a felony for bringing a gun to Wilder Middle School Monday.

The teenage boy was charged with one count of possession of a firearm on school property and placed in juvenile detention. He is set to appear in court later this month.

He was taken into police custody Monday after police say they found ammunition and an unloaded handgun on him.

The Wilder Middle School campus went on lockdown for 30 minutes Monday, during the investigation. Police say the gun was not used to threaten anyone and there were no injuries.

Police say the teen was searched and a magazine with bullets was found in his pocket.  Officers say an unloaded handgun was found in his book bag in another part of the school. School leaders say a small group of students alerted staff.
