11-year old schoolboy brings gun to school

11-year old schoolboy brings gun to school

A school boy from Queens, US, took a black pistol to class.

He took it from under his grandfather’s bed, officials said and there was a single bullet in the magazine.

"Oh my God! I can't believe this," said a visibly shaken Stacey John, 32, whose son is also a fifth-grader at the school. "They (school) didn't inform no one. How could this happen? ... I'm so upset right now."

The NYPD was summoned to the school at 1:15 p.m. Tuesday after school safety officers — notified by other students — found the student’s backpack with the gun stuffed inside, cops said.

The boy apparently showed no fear of the weapon. According to court records, he told police he was adept at loading and unloading the gun.



His grandfather, Kenneth Miley, 54, was ordered held on $30,000 bond over $25,000 cash bail on criminal possession of a weapon, endangering the welfare of a child and reckless endangerment charges.

"The gun doesn’t belong to my client," Richard Kopacz said at Miley’s arraignment late Wednesday. "He found it in the backyard."

Miley told cops he found the gun and planned to drop it off at a police stationhouse. He faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted.

Two additional live rounds of ammunition were discovered beneath his bed.

School officials also insisted students’ families were notified Tuesday about the incident.

Once inside the school, the student reportedly hid the backpack holding the gun behind some coats in a school closet. No charges were brought against the 11-year-old.
