Texas: Student Held After AK-47 and Handguns Found

A 17-year-old boy who had hidden a loaded AK-47 assault rifle in a bathroom at his San Antonio school and two loaded handguns in his backpack intended to “commit a violent act,” a school official said, but the plan was foiled Monday when his parents noticed the weapons were missing from their home and alerted school administrators. The unidentified boy, a sophomore, was taken into custody after he was found at Madison High School with handguns and ammunition stuffed into his backpack. He admitted to hiding the AK-47 in a trash can in the bathroom, said Aubrey Chancellor, a North East Independent School District spokeswoman. He also had a 12-inch knife, she said. No injuries or gunshots were reported in the school, which has 3,200 students. Ms. Chancellor said the boy had said he intended to make a series of demands during morning announcements. He had vowed to use the weapons, she said, if those demands were not met.
