10th-Grade boy brings gun to Ohio school then flees after handing it over

A 10th-grade boy brought a gun to Jefferson High School in Jefferson Township, Ohio.  After handing over the gun, he made a run for it.

From the article:
A 10th-grader who brought a loaded gun to Jefferson High school on Friday voluntarily handed it over to the teacher who confronted the student, district Superintendent Dr. Richard Gates told News Center 7.
The student, whose name is not being released, then ran off and had not been apprehended as of Friday night.
According to Montgomery County sheriff’s Maj. David Hale, the high school's administration and staff chased the student into a field across the street from the school building. The school was put on lockdown for a time.
The student's name is not being released.
Deputies called in a K-9 unit and were able to track the student about a mile east of the school before the caninetired, said Hale.
"We know who he is," Hale said. "All he did was put our officers through the ringer. He'll still be charged and has avoided nothing."
Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
