A young 8 year old boy is facing some various serious charges after he was found to have a gun in his desk. The boy, whose name has not been revealed due to his age, attends North Elementary School; located at 50 W White St, Brentwood, NY 11717. Reports show the child had arrived to class late. His teacher noticed him gesturing to another child and began walking over to them. As he got closer he overheard their conversation. It was then he saw the hand gun and notified officials. The child is facing fourth degree criminal possession of a weapon. Suffolk County Police confirmed the handgun was loaded, and if it is found to be operable, the charges may be increased to a felony. The case will be heard in Suffolk County Family Court because of the young age of the boy.
