Student arrested for having gun on school property

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A Western Hills High School student is facing charges after police say he brought a gun on school property.

The student is charged with possession of a firearm on school grounds, having a weapon while under disability, carrying a concealed weapon and aggravated menacing.

According to Cincinnati Public School security officials, the teen pulled up his shirt to apparently show off the .45 caliber pistol, and other students saw it. School security and the school resource officer were notified and chased the student, who ran off school grounds and into a wooded area.

The student was later apprehended at his home and taken to the Hamilton County Justice Center.

"At no time was the weapon drawn or was any person threatened or harmed by the student with the weapon," said CPS spokeswoman Janet Walsh.
