CALLAHAN, Fla. (AP) — Officials say a 12-year-old Florida boy was arrested after bringing three handguns to school.

The Florida Times-Union reports that the boy was taken into custody Thursday morning at Lighthouse Christian School in Nassau County.

The sheriff’s office says a teacher found two guns and two boxes of ammunition in the boy’s lunchbox after noticing it appeared heavy.

Officials say a loaded semi-automatic handgun was found on the boy later after he was moved to another area. The boy said he had shown the guns other students.
