ESSEX, Md. (AP) - Baltimore County police say an 8th grade student who brought a gun to school pointed the weapon at his teacher, his class and then himself before being restrained.
No one was injured Tuesday morning when the student brought the loaded handgun into Stemmers Run Middle School in Essex.
Police say the teacher was able to wrestle the gun away from the student, whose name has not been released.
The school was placed on lockdown as police searched the building.
The incident comes two weeks after a student at Perry Hall High School shot another boy in the school cafeteria. The victim in that shooting, Daniel Borowy, was released from the hospital Monday. Fifteen-year-old Robert Gladden Jr. faces charges in that shooting.
