STUDENT DISPLAYS GUN AT PARKERSBURG SCHOOL - A 15-year-old Parkersburg student allegedly brought a pistol into Blennerhassett Junior High early yesterday morning.

The principal says the suspect showed the gun to several students who told officials.

Principal Stephen Angel said students reported the problem. "They know that it's something very serious," he said.

Angel says the suspected student was immediately brought to the office and police were called.

The gun was not loaded.

The student was found in a closet, but why it was brought to the school wasn't clear.

"Anytime a gun like that is brought into the school it's serious, but we don't have any evidence at this time that there was a plan against Blennerhassett School," said the principal.

The student has not been arrested.

He could face possible expulsion from the school, and could spend time in juvenile detention.
