17-year old Jacksonville boy found with drugs and a gun in school

Security at a Jacksonville, Florida high school caught a drug deal in process between two boys, with marijuana.  One 17-year old boy ran, but was caught.  He was found to possess drugs and paraphenalia as well as a handgun and ammo, which he attempted to hide.

From an article:
Police say a security officer at First Coast High School confronted two individuals in the bathroom, exchanging marijuana in plain view. 
One person, a 17-year-old, ran from the bathroom. The security officer confiscated marijuana from the person in the bathroom, then chased after the second person who ran. 
The security officer eventually caught up with the 17-year-old who stated, "You can search me, I don't have anything on me." 
The security officer found marijuana at the bottom of the student's pants leg. The teen also denied throwing anything from his pockets in his run from security. 
But the officer searched and found an automatic pistol under a gas grill by the rear door to the gym. 
The security officer searched the teen's bookbag and found a scale to weigh drugs, and bullets. 
The teen has been charged with possession of a weapon on school property and possession of marijuana.
The article didn't say how the boy got the gun and ammo.

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