Teen found with loaded gun at Charlotte, NC high school

A teen was found to have a loaded handgun at West Charlotte High School, in Charlotte, North Carolina, though he was a student at another school program.

From the article:
A student was arrested after a loaded gun was discovered Tuesday at West Charlotte High School.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said the incident happened at 2:40 p.m. on campus, but details and the name and age of the student weren’t immediately available.
A Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools spokeswoman said the charged student is not a West Charlotte student but is enrolled in CMS’ Right Choices Program.
No one was injured, the spokeswoman said.
The Right Choices Program is for students who have violated the school system’s code of student conduct. “Right Choices is a six weeks placement that provides a more structured alternative setting, with support services from various human services agencies, for aggressive students,” according to CMS’ website.

Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
