Boy suspended for bringing a gun to school

CASPER -- A Casper teen has been suspended for bringing a loaded handgun to school.

The unidentified student brought the gun to Kelly Walsh High School Thursday but didn't threaten anyone. Students told a faculty member at 7:45 a.m. and staffers found the student and the gun soon afterward.

The incident came less than a week after the Connecticut school shooting.

Sgt. Deahn Amend said the student thought it would be "cool" to take the weapon to school.
