A 16-year-old high school student who brought a gun to school was sentenced to 30 days in a juvenile detention center.
The teen was arrested at Evergreen High School on Dec. 12. Police were called to the school after a teacher found a single-shot Rossi 410-gauge .22-caliber rifle-shotgun combination gun in a nylon case under a table inside a classroom.
Police said the barrels of the gun had been removed. There was also a box of ammunition.
The teacher reported it right away. Investigators said the boy brought the stolen gun to school to sell it to another student.
The teen pleaded guilty the following week in court to charges of theft of a firearm and possession of a dangerous weapon at school. He was sentenced Wednesday to 30 days in the juvenile detention center, with credit for 21 days already served.
He also must provide 40 hours of community service and will spend one year under court supervision.
The student who was the prospective buyer of the gun was also identified and interviewed, according to police, but he was not arrested or charged with a crime.
Police said there were no threats of violence in this case. The school was put into lockdown, along with other nearby schools, during the investigation.
