A 13 year old Cross Keys Middle School student is in juvenile custody after bringing a gun to school Thursday.

Ferguson-Florissant District officials say the student had told his teacher that he'd brought something to school that he shouldn't have. The teacher contacted school administrators who called Florissant police. They took the student into custody.

The gun, a .38-caliper pistol, was unloaded, but the student did have one bullet in his possession.

The case is being turned over to the St. Louis County Family Court. Besides possible weapons charges, the student faces long-term suspension or possibly expulsion.

A 13 year old could face charges for bringing a gun to a St. Louis elementary school. The weapon was found yesterday at Jefferson Elementary on the near North side.

The sixth grade suspect had allegedly used the weapon to terrorize several students over the past few days, even pointing it at some and making threats.

Two students spoke with Fox 2 news about their ordeals. A third grader said he thought he was going to die, "He came out of nowhere with a gun. He had put it to my head." The boy says the sixth grader pulled the trigger, but the gun clip fell out.

The victim's fourth grade cousin says the suspect threatened to shoot anyone who told on him. "I didn't tell nobody because I was scared to," the boy said. "I thought he was fixing to shoot me."

District spokesman Patrick Wallace acknowledged that a gun had been found at the school, but says the district can't comment because it involved a juvenile and it's still being investigated. Wallace did say the school is now reevaluating security.
