REYNOLDSBURG, Ohio (AP) - A central Ohio teen has been in custody since his arrest earlier this month after police say he was found in possession of a loaded handgun and extra ammunition at school.

The Columbus Dispatch reports (https://bit.ly/2hh7NKd ) the 14-year-old suspect was caught with the weapon and an additional extended magazine on Dec. 5 at Reynoldsburg High School’s Summit Campus.

The boy, who attends the suburban Columbus school district’s Encore Academy for the arts, was charged with juvenile counts of carrying a concealed weapon and illegal conveyance of a weapon onto school grounds.

Police say a note was found in the teen’s backpack that said “Don’t forget the gun” along with a phone number belonging to the mother of two Reynoldsburg High students. Those students’ parents say they don’t know the suspect.
