Teen charged for having unloaded gun at KCK school

KSAL StaffNovember 3, 2013

Wyandotte County officials say a 13-year-old girl is accused of bringing an unloaded handgun to her middle school.

Prosecutors say the girl was charged with a misdemeanor count of criminal use of a weapon. Kansas law prohibits anyone younger than 18 from possessing a firearm. Officials say the gun was not loaded, and the girl did not possess any ammunition.

Officials with the Turner Unified School District say the girl was arrested Wednesday at Turner Middle School after another student told school officials.

The Kansas City Star reports the girl made an initial court appearance Friday and was ordered held in juvenile detention.
