HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) - A seventh grader at Wilson Middle School in Hamilton was in juvenile court Tuesday morning for bringing weapons to school.

Hamilton police say the 13-year-old boy brought at least eleven knives, a hammer and pellet guns to school with him on Monday, fortunately he was caught before anyone was injured.

"Apparently he had told a student, or some students at school that he had these, well luckily the students knew what to do, they had told teacher and an administrator called him in," said Officer Richard Burkhardt of The Hamilton Police Department.

The student was charged with illegal conveyance of a deadly weapon in a school zone, he's currently in the juvenile detention center awaiting his pre-trial hearing on December 23.
