Kingsley — A fifth-grade student who is charged with bringing a loaded pistol to his middle school in Michigan’s northern Lower Peninsula has been expelled.

The Kingsley school board on Monday night made the decision about the 11-year-old.

Juvenile charges were filed last week against the child in the family division of 13th Circuit Court. The boy is facing charges of carrying a weapon with unlawful intent, carrying a concealed weapon and carrying a firearm in a gun-free school zone.

The Grand Traverse County sheriff’s department says another student at Kingsley Middle School told a teacher the boy had the gun Sept. 15. No one was hurt.

Authorities say the 11-year-old also had a list of students he wanted to harm. The boy, however, told authorities he didn’t intend to harm anyone.
