Bronx student in custody after bringing unloaded gun to school

Police say a student is in custody after bringing an unloaded gun into a Bronx school Thursday morning.

It comes less than two weeks after one student was killed and another injured in a stabbing in the same borough.

The city Department of Education says police safely recovered the handgun from MS 135/Bronx Park Middle School.

The 13-year old suspect allegedly told a friend he brought the gun because he was being bullied.

No one was injured and parents have been notified.

An investigation is ongoing.
