DETROIT -- A 13-year-old boy was caught carrying a loaded handgun into a Detroit school.
Detroit TV station WDIV says the boy felt threatened by other students Monday at Marquette Elementary-Middle School. Officials tell WDIV that the gun was seized when it set off a metal detector at the entrance.
In a statement, Detroit Public Schools says safety is a top priority. The district says it sent an email to parents informing them about the incident. The teenager was taken to a youth facility.
