AURORA 8TH GRADER CHARGED FOR BRINGING GUN TO SCHOOL
An 8th grader at a suburban Chicago middle school was charged with aggravated unlawful use of a weapon after a loaded handgun was found inside his locker. The gun was discovered Monday afternoon in the 13-year-old's locker at Washington Middle School in Aurora.
Authorities say a teacher became suspicious when she noticed a group of students milling around the boy's locker. A search of the locker by the teacher and an administrator turned up the gun in a book bag.
