PERRY, Kan. (AP) - Authorities have arrested a 13-year-old boy who is accused of taking a gun to his central Kansas middle school.

KSAL-AM (bit.ly/1n2NEHx) reports that the Abilene Middle School student was walking home on Wednesday when he was arrested. Abilene Police Lt. Mike Mohn says a handgun was recovered from the student’s backpack.

Mohn says officers believe that the student did not threaten anyone with the gun. He is accused of showing the gun to several friends at school. The friends alerted an adult, who then called police.
