SEATTLE (AP) - Seattle police say a 13-year-old boy accused of stealing a loaded antique gun from his grandmother’s house has been arrested. A nearby middle school was briefly locked down as a precaution.

Detective Renee Witt says the grandmother called police Wednesday morning to say her grandson had taken the gun - a German Luger - and left the house.

Eckstein Middle School was temporarily locked down.

Officers located and arrested the boy for investigation of theft.

A witness who reportedly saw the teen hide the gun in some bushes helped police locate it.
