CLARKSBURG, Md. (AP) - Lawyers for a Maryland High School student who was arrested after he brought a loaded handgun to school are denying a claim by prosecutors that he had made a list of grievances against other students.

Alwin Chen was charged after he showed up at Clarksburg High School, north of Washington, with a loaded gun in his book bag the day after a mass school shooting in Florida.

Police later found an AR-15 assault-style rifle and other items in his home.

The Washington Post reports that Chen’s lawyers have asked a judge to reevaluate the need for the 18-year-old honors student to be held in jail pending further court proceedings. His lawyers wrote that “there is no document that can be described as a list of grievances.”
