Ohio student charged with weapons violations

Posted: Updated:

ELIDA, Ohio (AP) - A police chief says an Ohio middle school student is facing weapons violations after allegedly bringing knives to school.
    
Authorities say the 13-year-old boy was apprehended after walking into the principal's office at Elida Middle School Wednesday and explaining that he was carrying a knife and a box cutter and also had two knives in his locker.
    
American Township Police Chief Matt Redick says the boy was charged Thursday with four counts of Illegal conveyance or possession of deadly weapon in a school safety zone.
    
Redick says the boy, who faces expulsion, is in Allen County juvenile detention and does not yet have a lawyer.
    
No one was injured and Redick says it appears the boy had entered the principal's office after realizing he didn't want to hurt anyone.
