SAN ANTONIO (AP) - A San Antonio high school student has been taken into custody after he allegedly brought an AK-47 assault rifle and other loaded weapons into the school.
North East Independent School District spokeswoman Aubrey Chancellor says the unidentified student on Monday brought three loaded firearms and a knife to Madison High School. The San Antonio Express-News reports one of the guns was found in a bathroom. Chancellor says ammunition was found in the student's backpack.
The school was placed on lockdown and there were no reports of injuries or shots being fired. Chancellor told the Express-News the boy was upset with a teacher.
His parents last week had reported him as a runaway.
The student's intentions were not immediately clear and no other information was available Monday morning.
