Bronx student charged with attempting to bring a gun into school

A Bronx high school student was charged with criminal possession of a weapon Thursday.

Police say a 15-year-old student at Adlai Stevenson High School tried to get a loaded nine millimeter handgun into school. The teen was caught with the gun before getting into the building. No one was injured.

Students say they are often stuck on long security lines, but after Thursday's incident some say waiting may be worth it.

Police have not yet said how the teen goy the gun or whether he intended to use the weapon.
