An 11-year-old boy has been arrested on charges of bringing a loaded gun to school in New York City.
The boy arrived at Public School 140 in the Jamaica section of Queens on Friday and bragged to a friend that he had a pistol in his book bag, police told The New York Post.
The police said the friend told a school safety officer, and the officer checked the boy's bag and found a loaded Glock 9mm semiautomatic gun.
The boy was arrested on charges of criminal possession of a weapon.
His name was not released because of his age.
