FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a South Florida junior high student was caught carrying a gun and other items at school last week.

Fort Lauderdale police report that the 13-year-old boy was taken into custody at Sunrise Middle School on Friday and involuntarily committed for mental health evaluation.

Officials confronted the boy after another student was seen giving him a knife in the school cafeteria. A search of his bag revealed a .357 revolver, a knife, ammunition, a mask and fireworks.

According to the South Florida Sun Sentinel (https://goo.gl/p3fI0a ), the school’s principal assured parents during a meeting Monday that students were safe.
