Student brings shotgun to school

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - A Birmingham middle school student was suspended Wednesday for bringing a shotgun to school.

School officials said the 14-year-old hid the unloaded shotgun in the ceiling of a bathroom at Ossie Ware Mitchell Middle School when he arrived Wednesday morning.  Officials said he returned to get it later in the school day, hiding it in his pants leg.

The boy said he was going to sell the gun to an adult and he planned to hide it in the school.

The school was placed on lockdown while it was being searched.

No one was hurt.

Officials said the child was suspended and may be expelled.
