The teen gave the officer several fake names, but the officer was able to confirm the 16-year-old's identity and arrested the teen, according to police.

Police said the teen will be charged with the following:

  • Two counts of possession of a firearm on school property.

  • One count of possession of a weapon by a delinquent juvenile.
