Student busted for bringing gun to Brooklyn high school

A Brooklyn high schooler brought a gun to school Tuesday and showed it to a school safety agent — who promptly took him into custody, police sources said.

The 15-year-old Midwood High School student was carrying a .22-caliber handgun in his pants pocket when he walked up to the agent at about 1:40 p.m. Tuesday, sources said.

He let the agent know there’d be a fight at the Bedford Ave. school later in the day, then told her, unsolicited, he had a gun and asked her if she’d like to see it, sources said.

The agent called 911, and held the teen until police arrived, cops said.

“This deeply troubling incident was immediately addressed by the NYPD, who swiftly and safely recovered the item,” said city Education Department spokeswoman Miranda Barbot. “There is absolutely no place for weapons in our schools, and we are providing ongoing supports to the school community.”
