Gun puts Boynton Beach school on partial lockdown

BOYNTON BEACH, FL (WFLX)-  The Charter School of Boynton Beach on Gateway Avenue is on lockdown Wednesday morning after a 12-year-old reportedly brought a hand gun to school.

Officials said another student saw the child put the gun into a trash can and reported the incident to school staff.

The child accused of bringing the gun to school is being questioned by officers.
 
The gun was recovered from the trash can and was determined to be unloaded, according to authorities.
 
One substitute teacher was arrested for obstruction of justice. The teacher was walking a student to the bathroom during the current lockdown, which is not allowed during the lock down.
 
No formal arrests on the child were made as of yet.
