• Dorchester teen arraigned for bringing unloaded gun to school, assaulting officer


    BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) -- A 17-year-old was arraigned Friday after bringing an unloaded gun to school and assaulting a Boston Police officer, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney's office.

    The teen was arraigned in juvenile court Friday on charges of unlawful possession of a firearm, assault and battery on a police officer and resisting arrest. His bail was set at $10,000 and he was ordered to stay away from the location where the incident happened.

    Police were called after 2 p.m. Thursday and told that the teen was making statements to other students about a gun he was carrying in his backpack, officials say. Officers found the student in a classroom and he became combative as they approached him. The teen then reached into his backpack and officers physically brought him to the ground. During the altercation with police, the teen bit an officer on the wrist. The teen suffered a laceration to his head, and was treated by Boston EMS.

    Police found an unloaded revolver, which was painted black, pink and white, in the teen's backpack. The paint had obscured the make, model and serial number on the gun.

    The teen is due in court next on Monday.
