An Annapolis teen faces charges Wednesday after being found in possession of a loaded gun at school.

According to Anne Arundel County Police, around 2:20 p.m. the School Resource Officer at Annapolis High School, located on Riva Road, was notified by a school administrator of a possible weapons offense. The administrator said they saw the tenth-grade student getting on a bus at dismissal and thought he may have a gun.

The student was taken to Southern District where he was charged as a juvenile with possession of a handgun.
