MADISON (WKOW) -- Madison Police say a teen has been taken into custody after a loaded handgun was found in a backpack at East High School Friday morning.
Officials say a MPD Educational Resource Officer and school staff had received information that a 17-year-old boy had brought the weapon to school.
The student was in the middle of talking with a police officer and school staff in an office when he tried to leave. Authorities say a struggle took place, and a MPD officer suffered a minor injury while helping gain control of the suspect.
The 17-year-old did not threaten anyone with the weapon and did not remove it from his backpack while at school.
