Police: Teen arrested, brought stolen, loaded gun to schoolJune 13, 2018 12:20pm

BURTONSVILLE, Md. (AP) — Police say a teenager who took a stolen, loaded gun to a Maryland high school near Washington has been charged as an adult with several offenses.

Montgomery County police tell news outlets 17-year-old Elijah Nyamekye brought the .38-caliber revolver Tuesday morning to Paint Branch High School in Burtonsville. Police found the gun stolen from Pennsylvania in his bag.

Police spokesman Rick Goodale tells WTTG-TV that the Silver Spring boy is not a Paint Branch student, and he fled after offering a fake name and student identification number. He was arrested off-campus and charged with possessing a stolen handgun and other offenses. It is unclear if he has a lawyer.

The school's principal told parents in a letter that she commends the security staff for their vigilance.
