A Warren County High School junior faces weapons charges after he carried a loaded gun onto campus Wednesday morning. The youth, whose name was not revealed because he is a minor, was taken into state custody after he confessed to bringing the 22 caliber handgun onto campus. The gun was found hidden in a box in a little-used locker room area where the youth discarded it.“The SROs (school resource officers) received a report that two students had seen the student with the gun on campus,” said Warren County Sheriff’s Department chief investigator Marc Martin.
