TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) - A fifth-grade student has been charged with bringing a loaded pistol to his middle school in Michigan’s northern Lower Peninsula.

The Traverse City Record-Eagle reported Friday that the juvenile charges against the 11-year-old were filed in the family division of 13th Circuit Court.

According to The Grand Rapids Press, the boy is facing charges of carrying a weapon with unlawful intent, carrying a concealed weapon and carrying a firearm in a gun-free school zone.

The Grand Traverse County sheriff’s department says another student at Kingsley Middle School told a teacher the boy had the gun Monday afternoon. No one was hurt.

Authorities say the 11-year-old also had a list of students he wanted to harm.

Undersheriff Nate Alger says the boy will not be arrested. He’s currently suspended from school.
