CRESTVIEW, Fla. (AP) - Officials say a 13-year-old boy faces multiple felony charges after putting a loaded handgun in his boot before getting on a school bus in Florida’s Panhandle.

An Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office arrest report indicates the teen had been reported missing by his family in Crestview on Tuesday afternoon when he didn’t return home from school. They told deputies he had stolen a firearm.

The Northwest Florida Daily News (https://bit.ly/1ngWdNj ) another student on the bus told authorities he saw the teen with a gun. The student described the gun to deputies and said he saw the teen fire the gun into the ground when he got off the bus.

The teen later returned home and deputies arrested him at his house Tuesday night. He faces numerous charges.
