Boy, 13, held after being seen with gun at school
Saginaw – A 13-year-old boy has been taken into custody after authorities say he was spotted with a handgun outside a Michigan elementary school.
Police responded Tuesday afternoon to a report about a person with a gun outside Herig Elementary School in Saginaw as students were being dismissed for the day. No one was injured. Radio station WSGW reports he’s not a student at the school.
Saginaw police Detective Sgt. Matthew Gerow tells The Saginaw News the boy would be held at the Saginaw County Juvenile Detention Facility pending a decision from prosecutors on possible charges. Gerow didn’t specify why the teen was at the school.
Saginaw is located about 85 miles northwest of Detroit.
