Sandy Hook School Shooting

Utah Boy "Apprehended" With Gun, Ammo at School

Said he brought it in to defend himself after the Connecticut shooting


Authorities say a Utah sixth-grader caught with a gun at school told administrators he brought the weapon to defend himself in case of an attack similar to the mass shooting last week in Newtown, Conn.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports that two classmates at West Kearns Elementary School reported the gun to a teacher toward the end of the school day Monday.
