Deputies: Teen takes sawed-off shotgun to school

Posted: Updated:

A teen is facing some serious charges after authorities said he was at school with a shotgun Friday.

The West Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office said a 16-year-old boy had a sawed-off shotgun at Port Allen High.

Deputies said he showed it off to some students and one student reported him to school officials.

Investigators said the boy threw the gun into a trash can at some point and the school was placed on lockdown around 2:30 p.m.

WBRSO was called to the school. Deputies arrested the teen and took the shotgun.

Authorities said the boy was booked on several charges, but they have not given a detailed list of what they are.

The student's name will not be released because of his age.

More information will be provided as it becomes available.
