— A 14-year-old boy is facing juvenile criminal charges after he allegedly brought a gun to school Wednesday.

Authorities pulled the teen out of class at Overhills High School in Spring Lake and found a .357 Magnum in his book bag.

Principal John Castranio said the student, whose name has not been released because of his age, had a fight with a friend on Tuesday and allegedly made threats to him.

The gun was unloaded, Castranio said but there were bullets in the bag.
