Police have taken a student into custody for allegedly bringing a loaded gun to a Driggs Avenue high school Wednesday morning.

The 17-year-old student brought the handgun to Unity Preparatory Charter High School — located at 584 Driggs Ave., between N. Fifth and N Sixth streets — inside his backpack and one of his peers alerted the principal about it, shortly before 11 a.m., a police spokesman said.

The principal then detained the teen and alerted the cops, who took him into custody with charges pending, according to the spokesman.
