The charges include one count of possession of a firearm and three counts of aggravated assault. Granite school district spokesman Ben Horsley says the gun was found in the boys backpack after two of his fellow students reported it to their teacher. The boy insists that he brought the gun to school to protect himself from a Connecticut style school shooting. Horsley says while it’s a legitimate concern it’s never an appropriate action.</p> Tue, 18 Dec 2012 19:41:51 +0000 Brian Grimmett 22501 at http://kuer.org Police Charge Kearns Boy Who Brought Gun to School Lights!
