Charge filed against teen accused of bringing gun to Turner Middle School
KANSAS CITY, Kan. — A 13-year-old girl was charged with one misdemeanor count of criminal use of a weapon for being under 18 and possessing a handgun on Friday. The charge comes after the teenager was accused of bringing a gun to Turner Middle School last Wednesday.
The girl made her first court appearance on Friday and is being held in juvenile detention while she awaits further court proceedings. Kansas statutes mandate that because the accused is less than 14 years old, this case file has been ordered to stay closed and the juvenile will not be identified.
